[6/15/16] I am happy to report that I have won my At Large primary with 63%+ of the votes. Among other things I hope to join Elissa Silverman who was the single vote in support of keeping McMillan Park as a resource for the people.
For the June 14, Primary Election I ran for DC Council At Large as a member of the DC Statehood Green Party. If you wish to support a future candidacy or this blog, please send a check marked G. LEE AIKIN, to 1754 Swann St., NW, Washington, DC 20009*
[11/10/16] The General Election is over, and in a field of six candidates to fill two seats, I came in third as I had hoped. The second place winner had over $300,000 in campaign funds, I had under $10,000. He also had fewer than 4 times as many votes while spending at least 60 times as much.
For the immediate future my major focus of energy will be saving McMillan Park from a NO-BID developer who wants our Mayor to sell them this land valued at over $100million for a bargain price of $17million. Our land paid for with our taxes!!!
