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!
