There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
Vincent Orange unveiled his two campaign slogans—-“Leaving No One Behind” and “Taking No One for Granted”—-last week, and now he’s pushing them in print. After launching at Gallaudet University’s conference center, Orange’s campaign is touting a 40,000-copy mailing introducing voters to Orange.
This is no one-sheet campaign lit. Instead, Orange’s mailer comes in four pages of letter-sized paper, according to an Orange spokesman. The mailer starts with a picture of Orange above a long list of D.C. neighborhoods, including, inexplicably, the historic Irish-immigrant shantytown Swampoodle, which no longer exists.
Then come three more pages of Orange news and bio, with the mailer highlighting Orange’s role in the minimum wage hike and food truck regulations. Other Orange favorites, including film incentives and the University of District of Columbia, also get mentions.
