Reliable sources indicate that a new candidate is considering a run for the MoCo Board of Education, most likely in District 2 but potentially in the at-large race. Oscar Alvarenga is the president of the Summit Hall Elementary School PTA, and he was recently voted the PTA President of the Year by the Montgomery County Council of PTAs. Hereâ€™s a video of Alvarengaâ€™s reaction to winning the award from earlier this year.
In District 2, the incumbent is Rebecca Smondrowski, while the at-large incumbent is Phil Kauffman. Both have indicated their intention to run for reelection.
