Updates on our Endorsement Plan

A message for Kesh, DC4D Chair

We will have a very important endorsement vote next month on important 2018 electoral contests in DC. What was shaping up to be an exciting election season got revved up further with the entry of Ed Lazere, former Executive Director of the DC Fiscal Policy Institute, into the race for Council Chair.

ENDORSEMENT MEETING

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13th 6-9pm
African American Civil War Museum (1925 Vermont Avenue 
near U Street metro)
Please RSVP on Facebook or here.

We are voting on all races in the June 19th DC Democratic primary: Council Chair, At-Large Council, Ward 1,3,5 and 6 Council, Attorney General, Mayor, Delegate, Shadow Senator, Shadow Representative, and the DC Democratic State Committee slate of candidates. Additionally, we will also hold a special up-or-down vote on Elissa Silverman’s re-election for At-Large Council in the general election in November, and the ballot initiative on the One Fair Wage. And if that’s not enough, we will vote for DC4D Officers!

NOTE: This is an extremely important endorsement vote. If you have any interest in this meeting, even if you are not sure, please RSVP on Facebook or here. Please be considerate of our volunteers’ time and energy. Take a few seconds to RSVP!
