I'm going to keep this short because I wasn't completely blown away. I think that two candidates came out on top: Yavocka Young, current president of Main Street Anacostia, and Charles Wilson, head of the Historic Anacostia Block Association. They seem to have the best handle on economic development in Ward 8, as well as the most realistic and appropriate ways of bringing our neighborhoods up to speed with the rest of the city.
In an 8-candidate race it is important that we separate the wheat from the chaff or there will be no chance of beating the incumbent.
Oh yeah, and Marion Barry was not there, and "SS" Seagars showed up way late.
