Today, Maryland Juice received an email from former Delegate Saqib Ali announcing his campaign for Montgomery County Board of Education. A few hours later,
anti-immigrant anti-immigration organization Help Save Maryland followed-up with their own email. We present both messages below:

I wanted you to be among the first to know: I’m running for the Montgomery County Board of Education (District 2).
As you may know, I served as a State Delegate for 4 years (2007-2011) representing Germantown, Gaithersburg and North Potomac. During my time in Annapolis I fought to increase school funding so that we could have smaller class sizes and better school facilities. Now my oldest daughter Sofia is preparing to start at MCPS elementary school in September. I know she will be attending a great school system. I want to be a part of making it even better. I believe my skills & experience will be an asset for the Board of Education.
The voting rules in this election are quite unique. It is a non-partisan election. So all registered voters in the entire Montgomery County are eligible to vote regardless of party or residence. The primary election will be held on March 24 - April 3rd. The general election will be held in November. There are 5 candidates running. The top 2 vote-getting candidates (regardless of party) will emerge from the primary election. And then one of them will be selected in the general election in November as the final winner. My immediate goal is to place in the top 2 in the primary election.
The primary election is less than 2 months away! I can't win it without your help. Most importantly, I need you and your entire family to vote for me on the very first possible day: March 24th. I also need your help to convince others to do the same. You can do this by:
Please stand with me to make our schools better.
Warmest Regards, I'll be in touch...
