Ward 5 turned out in good fashion for last week\’s mid-term elections. The number of voters increased by 7.5% over 2014 and 14% over 2010. Forty-five percent of the over 68,000 registered voters participated.
There was very little turnover among the ANC Commissioners during the 2018 General Election. Only 3 of the 24 incumbents lost their seats. The margin of victory ranged from 4 votes (Bradley Thomas-5E05) to 998 (Robert Looper, III – 5C03). The conventional wisdom could be that the Ward 5 constituents are pleased with the job these commissioners are doing.
Time will tell as The DC Voice chronicles the Class of 2018.
