City Paper is not for tourists
Marc Fisher kinda stole my thunder on this post, which I had been saving until I could get a definitive answer from the Marion Barry camp—-which has been hard, since Barry is back to not talking to LL. But Fish has the Barry scoop, and here’s the complete list of the District’s elected officials and their presidential preferences:
CLINTON At-Large Councilmember David A. Catania Ward 1 Councilmember Jim Graham Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans (D.C. campaign co-chair) Ward 3 Councilmember Mary M. Cheh Ward 5 Councilmember Harry Thomas Jr.
OBAMA Mayor Adrian M. Fenty Congressional Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray At-Large Councilmember Kwame R. Brown Ward 4 Councilmember Muriel Bowser Ward 6 Councilmember Tommy Wells Ward 7 Councilmember Yvette Alexander Ward 8 Councilmember Marion Barry Shadow Rep. Mike Panetta Shadow Sen. Paul Strauss Shadow Sen. Michael D. Brown Acting Attorney General Peter Nickles (not elected, but LL ran into him at the Wilson Building yesterday and surprisingly got a straight answer)
UNCOMMITTED At-Large Councilmember Carol Schwartz At-Large Councilmember Phil Mendelson
