The Kick Off To Election Season Is About To Begin

Cindy A. Rose

Tomorrow not only begins 2020, but it begins the count-down for the 2020 Presidential election.  Primary Election day is April 28, 2020 and the General is November 3, 2020.  January 24, 2020 at 9:00 p.m. is the filing deadline if you plan to run for an elected office in Maryland.

As of December 31, 2019 only three candidates have filed for Frederick County office.  All three have registered to run for the Frederick County Board of Education. David Bass -; Caleb Rose who has listed no website or Facebook page and Dean Rose

For statewide office (Frederick Jurisdictions):

Congressional District 01:

Democrat Mia Mason -


Congressional District 06:

Republican Kevin T. Caldwell -

Republican Neil Parrott -


Judicial Circuit 06:

Theresa M. Adams

So far no Presidential candidates have filed to run in Maryland.

This will change swiftly once we get closer to the filing deadline as most don’t like to file before the last few days.  It’s a strategy to keep your cards close to your vest.

As we start the celebrations tonight to kick off what promises to be a very interesting if not exciting campaign year every one stay safe.  Don’t drink and drive and friends, don’t let your friends drive drunk.

Happy New Year from The Tentacle.
