Mayoral hopeful Tommy Wells followed the path honed by Barack Obama and At-Large Councilmember David Grosso and took questions from Reddit users Sunday night. Wells spent most of the time restating his positions on smart growth (for), the Large Retailer Accountability Act (against), and abolishing the D.C. Taxicab Commission (for).
But the name of the game is Ask Me Anything, and LL is saddened to report that Wells did not, in fact, answer everything. Among the questions Wells skipped:
- “Mr. Wells, what’s the dankest weed you’ve ever smoked?”
- “Who would you rather fight: 50 duck-sized Vincent Oranges, or one Vincent Orange-sized duck?”
- “I’m curious, who do you think would win in a fight, Muriel Bowser or Mario and Luigi?”
- “Mr. Wells, what’s your favorite Fugazi album?”
In the absence of Wells’ position on post-hardcore, he made a video explaining why he’s against raising the District’s height limit.
