Brianne Nadeau Prevails in Ward 1 Primary Race

With all voting precincts reporting in, mayoral candidate Muriel Bowser (with 44.24% of the vote) and Ward 1 candidate Brianne Nadeau (with 58.68% of the vote) won decisive victories in yesterday’s closely watched and hotly contested D.C. Primary elections. Voter turn-out was low, with only 22.50% of registered voters participating in either early voting or yesterday’s Primary, and played significant roles in several of the tight races.  You can view the election results for all races at the DC Board of Elections Web site.  I’ve also included the results of the Ward 1 primary below.

I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Brianne Nadeau on her victory. Nadeau ran a well-organized and aggressive campaign and it paid off handsomely. Her youthful energy and intelligence — along with her growing knowledge of the residents and issues gained from months of canvasing every corner and neighborhood in Ward 1 — will serve her well and help her hit the ground running when she takes office next January.

    Well, ultimately change in politics is good, but councilman Graham has served ward 1 well. In my 9 years here he has always responded to my issues quickly and effectively. He also fought hard for on controversial issues when he knew what was best for the particular neighborhood. I hope Nadeau understands Park View big issues and we don’t loose the support that comes with having a history on them.

    I was charmed by Nadeau but gave Graham my vote – I am convinced that without his skill/efforts we would have a 6-story Central Union Mission on the 3600 block of Georgia .

    DCist is reporting Bryan Weaver will run in November. I’d give him my vote. He actually seems like he knows what he’s doing. Nadeau just seemed like to much of a pipe dreamer, with no actual explanation on how she would get things done.

    • Angry Parakeet Says:

      He has a good strategy – dropping out of the primary to run against that winner. He will have my vote; I’ve been watching him for years.

    What is the evidence that low turnout affected the outcomes?
