With many thanks to our local politicians for filing early, here are some of the more interesting fundraising totals for Howard County elected officials:
Courtney Watson -- $254,410 Raised; $374,457 On Hand
Guy Guzzone -- $61,600 Raised; $227,475 On Hand
Calvin Ball -- $85,425 Raised; $190,384 On Hand
Mary Kay Sigaty -- $753 Raised; $21,120 On Hand
Allan Kittleman -- $170,655 Raised; $184,194 On Hand
Also interesting to note is that Maryanne Maher and Chris Merdon have both elected to keep their campaign accounts closed, forestalling speculation that they will be jumping back into the political arena for 2014. It is early yet, but it is getting late to say as much.
