• Ladies Republican Club, Holds “Meet & Greet”

Guy W. Midkiff

Annette Johnson, of the Ladies Republican Club, will be holding a quasi-debate/meet-and-greet, at Chico’s, February 6th, from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30.

She has invited all of the City Council Candidates to appear and give a short presentation about themselves. I will be in attendance and more than happy to answer questions regarding my stance on the issues.

I appreciate “The Ladies” for taking the lead and getting candidates back to the old style of politicking. People need to see and hear from the person they are voting for. I believe that politics in Washington can not afford to be a popularity contest: Who has lived where the longest. Who goes to what church. Who is being endorsed by what newspaper. Washington must move decisively into the future, in a manner that is not only progressive, but smart as well.

And while certain newspapers place a premium on harmonious relationships and City Council members rubber stamping the executives ever-expanding Christmas list, I will not.

Yes, there needs to be cooperation among council members, but it doesn’t mean we have to be lap-dogs.

See you Wednesday.
