May Candidate Forums Announced
Although the Ward 6 Council race will be low-drama (spoiler alert: our Council member, Charles Allen, is very likely to be re-elected for a third term as he's running unopposed), there are MANY important races on the ballot this year.
The Ward 6 Dems have teamed up with the Hill Rag, the Hill Center, the DC Democrats, the Ward 2 Democrats, and the DC Young Democrats to make sure you have the information you need to make educated choices on Tuesday, June 21, the date of the DC primary election.
Join us for a weekly candidate forum series. These discussions will be each Monday in May from 7-9 PM at the Hill Center (921 Pennsylvania Ave SE, two blocks from the Eastern Market Metro stop and near several major bus lines).
May 2 - Dem At Large candidates
May 9 - Dem Attorney General candidates
May 16 - Dem Council Chair candidates
May 23 - Dem Mayoral candidates
