Maybe it was the setting — a house of worship — but a quartet of candidates vying for two at-large seats on the D.C. Council eschewed the bitter rhetoric and personal attacks that have dominated the past few weeks for veiled swipes and even cordiality during a debate in Georgetown on Thursday.
The field of candidates for the pair of at-large seats on the D.C. Council is taking shape, an uphill battle against incumbents Michael A. Brown, an independent, and Vincent B. Orange, who earned the Democrats' nomination in April.
While he has not been formally accused of anything, "you have that whole culture of corruption, and you've lost trust," Ms. Beatty said in a Friday debate on WAMU-FM's Kojo Nnamdi program.
"I'm calling on council member Brown to do the honorable thing and not seek re-election," she said. "The District needs new representatives who are interested in serving the people rather than serving themselves."
