Reminder that the DC primary election is fast-approaching on Tuesday, September 14 and that early voting is available at the old Hine Junior High School across from Eastern Market at 335 8th St SE through this Saturday, September 11.
This election will determine if Mayor Fenty will be able to continue his push to further lower crime and improving DC's public schools, whether Tommy Wells will continue on as Ward 6's Councilmember in his relentless efforts to further livable, walkable communities. It will also determine the new Chairman of the DC Council (Kwame Brown seems like the obvious choice and not just because his campaign office is on H Street), and who will serve for one of the at-large Councilmembers for the seat currently held by Phil Mendelson (who is best known for being "softer than soft on crime" and is opposed by one very credible opponent -- Clark Ray -- and one individual who has no business receiving votes, but appears to be getting many solely because he shares the name of another Councilmember Michael Brown).
Whatever you do, do not forget to vote. Early voting ends Saturday. Polls open at your designated voting location Tuesday morning.
