2016

Three of the seven seats on the Frederick County Board of Education were up for general election on November 8, 2016. A primary election was held on April 26, 2016, with the top six vote recipients advancing to the general election. Incumbents Zakir Bengali and Joy Schaefer filed for re-election, while Kathryn Groth did not file for the 2016 election. Bengali and Schaefer faced challengers Michael Bunitsky, Lois Jarman, Ken Kerr, Jay Mason, Shirley McDonald, and Cindy Rose in the primary. All candidates except Bengali and Mason advanced to the general election.

Schaefer, Kerr, and Bunitsky defeated Rose in the general election. On July 12, 2016, Jarman announced her withdrawal from the race in an effort to deny election to Rose by shifting votes to other candidates. Jarman told attendees at a South Frederick County Democrats meeting that she considered Rose "a dangerous candidate" due to her divisive personality. In an email to The Frederick News-Post, Rose said that she is only considered divisive because "I involved the public and the establishment doesn't abide sunshine." Rose was the only candidate who identified as a Republican. Shirley McDonald dropped out of the race on July 13, 2016.
