mayoral candidates
posted by soe 11:52 pm

Nine months before the D.C. mayoral election, we have five candidates for the office. Three are current D.C. Council members, one is the former head of a telecom corporation, and one is the son of a deceased DNC chair.

At last night’s forum, apparently the moderator asked them about civil unions. (Due to our special despised status as a protectorate of Congress, legalizing gay marriage is out.) Three candidates — Adrian Fenty, Marie Johns, and Michael Brown — spoke in favor of legalizing them in the District. The other two were not.

The other two — Council Chair Linda Cropp and Council member Vincent Orange — will not be getting my vote.

Thanks for making my job easier for me, candidates. I appreciate it.
