LL noticed these flyers, which initiate Large Retailer Accountability Act opponents Muriel Bowser and Tommy Wells into the “Poverty Wage Coalition,” all over the city yesterday.
“Muriel Bowser and Tommy Wells recently voted to bring poverty-wage jobs to D.C.,” the flyer declares. Readers are asked to call the D.C. Council’s main number and let Bowser and Wells—-not coincidentally, both candidates for mayor—-that “we expect more from them.”
The pictures are nice quality for a lamp post flyer, but LL has to question the wisdom of pressuring Bowser and Wells, who has his own living wage bill, so long after the vote. Why not run gray-scale photos of Gray or potential veto-override voter David Catania instead?
