Now that the February 25, 2014 filing deadline for candidacy has passed, we also know who will be running for the Prince George’s County District 9 Board of Education seat. According to the Maryland Board of Elections website, we have the following four candidates for the District 9 BOE race:
- Domonique Flowers
- Johnnie Isaac
- Denise Joseph
- Sonya Williams
Williams will be the incumbent in the race since she was appointed to the BOE seat in December by County Executive Baker.
On this blog, I follow this BOE race for one reason. I want to find out if my thesis regarding incumbent slate endorsements holds true. As I have stated before, I am convinced that the candidate who receives the endorsement of the local incumbent politicians and their slate will prevail
