A group of influential Ward 7 residents voted last week to back a campaign to oust D.C. Council member Yvette Alexander, who is up for re-election in 2012, The Washington Times has learned.
Residents of Ward 7 noticed recently that the constituent services office of D.C. Council member Yvette Alexander in Southeast has been closed, and the telephone is temporarily out of service.
"This rail system is not going up U Street," said Mr. Crawford, a former D.C. Council member who represented Ward 7. "This board has become everything it should not be. It has become politicized."
District appointee H.R. Crawford lamented what he called a disproportionate Virginia influence on the board, saying members were largely convinced by Virginia appointee Ms. Reiley to vote for an underground rail station at the Dulles airport stop.
