SMOB Candidates Turn to Social Media Ahead of Election

SMOBComposite2016On the eve of the Montgomery County Student Member of the Board of Education (SMOB) election, candidates have turned to social media to garner support.

Eric Guerci, current SMOB and junior at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, urged supporters to retweet his banner on Twitter and asked students to stand with him on Facebook.

Guerci’s opponent Alex Abrosimov, a sophomore at Richard Montgomery High School has also turned to Twitter and Facebook. Abrosimov even arranged for a food truck to be sent near Poolesville High School on election day. Access to food trucks are a key issue for Abrosmiv.

“Since food trucks are a private business they are self funding with the help of customers. They are important because it is a radical measure to solve lunch disparities in MCPS and to provide better lunch options for students. I feel very confident about the election and no matter the outcome I believe that this has truly been an amazing campaign,” Abrosimov told MyMCMedia.

Abrosimov said he has connections in the food truck industry and worked with Poolesville High School’s Student Government Association (SGA) to arrange for The Java Cruiser to stop by the school’s area. 



Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) middle and high school students will vote for SMOB on April 27th.
