D.C. Democratic Delegate Position(s)

ART of WAR Concept: What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease.

It’s election season and of course everyone is focused on the City Council races. It is always the top level positions that are the topic of conversation and get the most press.. However, I would like for you take notice of a little known position called the DC Pledged District-Level Delegate. The Delegate position is elected by the Democratic voters of the District of Columbia to represent them at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) to be held the week of September 4, 2012. That means the winner(s) will travel to Charlotte, NC for the DNC to represent issues important to the District like D.C. Voting Rights/Statehood and cast their support for the Democratic Presidential nominee – President Barack Obama.

What makes this position so interesting is that there will be a total of 14 Delegates elected to represent the District. Seven (7) people will be elected from either Wards 1, 2, 6 or 8. And another seven (7) more elected from Wards 3, 4, 5, and 7. Unlike the City Council election where there is only one winner, the Delegate election there will be multiple winners. Election will take place during the DC Democratic Cacus in the coming weeks. It would be great to have more than one person elected from Ward 8. I’ve always believed that in order to see some real change in our Ward it takes more than just a person elected to City Council. You need people who share a common vision amongst all available political positions that can have an impact in Ward 8.

So if you are interested in serving in this position you have until February 17, 2012 to declare your candidacy. To learn more please visit the DC Democratic State Committee website at: and click on the applicable link. I have also included the application below.
