A string of Ward 5 hopefuls picked up paperwork on Friday as part of the race to replace former council member Harry Thomas Jr. in a special election on May 15, less than two weeks after the ousted legislator is scheduled to be sentenced for theft and tax fraud involving public funds.
"I think people are kind of tip-toeing around it," Ms. Broadnax said in a brief interview at the BOEE, noting she appreciates the contributions of the Thomas family but believes the former council member had to take responsibility for his actions. "In my opinion right is right, wrong is wrong."
Ms. Broadnax, 30, said there are plenty of other issues to take on in Ward 5, including the advent of medical marijuana facilities in Ivy City and the lack of middle school options in the ward.
