unofficial results

hey, at least we know that there's a strong contingency seeking change over here, and a wide range of people that will be urging meaningful improvements in Ward 8 no matter who represents us in the council.

Charles, you ran a great campaign. There are a ton of people out there who can't wait to see you in the DC political scene - so stick with it.



Definitely a setback for the progress and positive recognition of Ward 8, but not one that will last forever. Here's to hoping that Yavocka Young has success as an Independent Democrat in the November election!

The only way Marion Barry will ever exit politics in Washington is feet first. I live in upper NW and there are people up here who sing his praises because he "gave them jobs" when they were teens. That may be all well and good, but it continues to baffle me why the residents of Ward 8 continue to elect this has-been, sad-sack junkie.
