Whatever will happen in Ward 8 is contingent on thoughtful consideration on what is needed. Enough of the rhetoric. A plan needs to be developed highlighting the strengths and needs of the Ward. It will also need to be discussed with the current Council member. Regardless of what people think of the councilmember, nothing will move forward without his involvement.
I was a little disappointed due to her minimal track record. Salute to the uninformed black vote! On the bright side she was Fenty's protege and I liked Fenty! Lets get it popping Ms. BOWSER! DC is ready for a change!
I for one would like to know precisely that: what do the election results mean for EOTR? Bowser chaired/chairs the committee on economic development. So, maybe we can see significant and consistent movement on developments EOTR- Barry Farm, for instance. I have my fingers crossed and will be watching.
Anonymous @ 9:23, what phenomenal legislation did Fenty push through when he was a councilmember before he was elected mayor? For that matter, what phenomenal legislation did Catania author in his first term as a councilmember? I don't know why people are holding Bowser to a standard they don't hold male councilmembers. Her record was about as good as any other one-term councilmember. No one said Fenty was unqualified to run for mayor, even though his legislative track record wasn't much different than Bowser's. Feels like a sexist double standard to me.
