Back from Yearly Kos

Wednesday, August 8th, 2007

I just got back into town after being at YearlyKos the latter half of last week. We (Danny Rose from DC Vote, Martin Austermuhle from DCist, and Keshini Luddewhetty from DC for Democracy, and myself) had a great session on DC Voting Rights and Martin even live blogged it in case you couldn’t make it.

I talked to anyone and everyone who would listen about the need to pass the DC Voting Rights Act so that we could end our colonial status in our our own country. I even told Howard Dean that, although I liked his 50-state strategy..I was more interested in a 51 state strategy. He laughed and said he’s been working to get the DC Voting Rights Act passed. I said it’s a good first step :)

Did you know that the Olympics start in one year?? Do you know what we are going to do if this bill doesn’t pass? That’s right…fire up the ‘ole DC Olympic Team. What should be our summer sport?

DC for Democracy Endorsement

Monday, August 14th, 2006

I was very happy last week to get the endorsement from DC for Democracy. It’s a group of progressive Democrats in the DC area that have done some great work over the past few years on issues like the Iraq war and affordable housing in DC.

The group was formed from the remnants of the Howard Dean campaign. I used to go to the “DC for Dean” meetups in 2003-2004, so it’s pretty cool to get an endorsement now as a candidate. Thanks to everyone who showed up and voted for me.
