At-Large Candidates’ Endorsement Forum – Recap
The event was packed from the beginning and included a spirited question and answer session.
The forum was set up for the candidates to answer questions from the audience and address community concerns. Check out my tweets, and tweets from @ward8youngdems for interesting one-liners that came out of the event.
The candidates in attendance included:
- Sekou Biddle
- Thomas Brown
- Dorothy Douglas
- Joshua Lopez
- Vincent Orange
- Bryan Weaver
Ground rules of the event stated that each person asking a question had to direct it to only two of the candidates. I asked what Mr. Weaver and Mr. Lopez planned to do to to help us train our children to be prepared for jobs at St. Elizabeths. Take a listen to their responses. In the audio, Mr. Weaver answered first, Mr. Lopez second. As an interesting aside, you can her Mary Cuthbert, Commissioner ANC8C03 and Mr. Lopez have a brief exchange…in case you can’t make out his response to her comment, he said “don’t interrupt” – – the last part of his comment -“me again” was cut off of the recording.
