There's more than one way to do Las Vegas, as half a dozen members of the D.C. Council have shown. The cost to taxpayers to send half the council to the Global Retail Real Estate Convention in Las Vegas was close to $14,000 this year.
The end game. The first black U.S. president, Barack Obama, appointed the first black U.S. attorney general, Eric H. Holder Jr., who wanted another black, Ronald C. Machen Jr., to be the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.
Longtime D.C. political insider Anita Bonds was elected to the D.C. Council Tuesday, fending off five challengers in a special election.
Martin Luther King dreamed of the day his children would live in a nation "where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." It remains a noble goal. It's a shame Dr. King's goal has been abandoned by certain members of the District of Columbia city council.
One of the contenders seeking a citywide seat on the D.C. Council in the upcoming election has found the city's liberal echo chamber to be a not-so-friendly environment.
The D.C. Democratic State Committee selected its chairwoman, Anita Bonds, to fill a vacant seat on the city's legislative body until a special election this spring.
She said the council member hoped to court retailers to come to Ward 5.
Looking forward, Ms. Bonds has said she plans to run for the full-term seat in a crowded field that includes former at-large candidate A.J. Cooper.
