June 22, 2022

Katie Speert announced this week that she is dropping out of the race for a seat on the Carroll County Board of Education. Speert was one of eight candidates who filed to run for three open seats on the board. Speert, executive director of Westminster nonprofit Together We Own It, said the organization was awarded funding from a partnership with the Carroll County Public Schools system through the federal American Rescue Plan, creating a conflict of interest. She announced her decision to withdraw from the race in an emotional Facebook video post on June 8.
