Ward Woes for Go-Go Mayor
(Washington City Paper) — Ahoy, ahoy Washington! Happy Tuesday to you. Wondering who your substitute Loose Lips is? A quick refresher from Friday. Hopefully, you had a lovely Memorial Day weekend. Let’s get to it, shall we?
WARD WOES: Wouldn’t it be nice if we all had some good ward-by-ward polling on the mayor’s race? Instead of having some hard data readily available, your substitute Loose Lips and most everyone else in town has to gauge support by looking at the number of campaign signs and assess the mood of key constituencies. And while you never want to count out the man who swept all eight wards four years ago, Mayor Adrian Fenty seems to be having some trouble connecting with voters in Ward 6! At least with those likely voters who showed up to the Ward 6 Democratic Legacy Dinner & Awards at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Southwest last week.
