Today, we continue our series of Conversations with the Candidates. The general election is November 6th, which is 16 weeks from yesterday.
Tom's guest is Anjali Reed Phukan, the Republican nominee for Maryland Comptroller. She is running against the incumbent, Democrat Peter Franchot, who was first elected as the state’s fiscal chief in 2006.
Ms. Phukan is an auditor for the State of MD. She is a Certified Public Accountant. This is her second bid to become the state’s Comptroller. She ran as a write-in candidate in 2014. She also ran for the school board in Montgomery Co., where she lived at the time, in 2016.
