According to the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics, 34 people voted for a write-in candidate in ANC 6B08 yesterday. That might mean 34 people voted for Arthur Delaney, the pro-single-beers candidate.
Unfortunately for single beers, over 800 people voted for four-term incumbent Neil Glick. He sent an email bragging about it to his family and friends with a little note to Arthur Delaney at the bottom.
Thank you, Arthur for your spirited campaign.
I just checked the unofficial results this morning, where I reicieved 818 votes — the highest amount of votes for a candidate in ANC 6B, and second highest in all of Ward 6, and the 8th highest votes received in all of the City for ANC Commissioners. You might have received as many as 34 votes.
I am glad you interjected a discussion about the sale of singles in our neighborhood. And the voters made their choice: they support the ban on singles.
Getting the endorsement of your employer, the Washington City Paper is very impressive, and I commend you for that.
And choosing to put yourself out there and being a candidate takes guts. I wish more people in America would do the same. We’d have a better political system if we did.
Can I buy you a six pack?
5 term ANC Commissioner 6B08
