INDEX of all Posts, Newest to Oldest, Dates, Titles, Guests

As a convenience to my readers here is an index of all Posts with Dates, Titles and Subject (where the title is not clear), and guest authors.  At first most posts were about DC issues, but once I was running for Congress, I also added national issues.  Tax and income issue articles have dates printed RED. Environmental posts are GREEN.  Health and wellness issues are BLUE.  Political posts are PURPLE.  My political information and original ideas are highlighted.  Just click the blue lined titles to go directly to the blog post.  Otherwise go to the year and month to your left.  I would love to see more comments.

[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!!!
