Fifth and O has a little something on ANC candidates running in 2C. Daddy5-O asks, and I’m slightly wondering too, um where in the Ward is Kevin Chapple? Cause even though Mr. Thorpe, the current ANC for 2C02, is known for his inflammatory words, it seems it is going to take more than a lovely website to defeat Thorpe. The problem seems to be is Mr. Chapple is an unknown. Of his events, I don’t see a meet and greet. However, digging deeper going to the “forums” he intends to attend the Sept 11 ECCA meeting at 7pm held at the 3rd St Baptist Church on 5th & Q Streets.
I got a question in the comments about some of the Ward 5 people running. As I understand it there are like a dozen people running. Checking the poster’s link it goes to the Moore’s, which includesMs. Miriam Moore an Independent running for Ward 5. I’m trying to remember if she showed up to a BACA meeting, maybe, got to check with Jim. As the TC is on the tail end of Ward 5, we could easily get forgotten, so anyone not showing up at a BACA meeting running for Ward 5 is on my unhappy list. Thomas, Wilds and Zapata are on my happy list only because they have shown up for little things over here on the NW side, giving me hope that if one of them gets elected they won’t forget us like Orange did.
Don’t ask me who I am going to vote for. I am a registered Independent, so my options, in a city where 1 out of 10 isn’t a Democrat, are limited.
