Ward 1 Council Election Heating Up

According to the City Paper, the debate among Ward 1 Council contenders hosted by the Kalorama Citizens Association at Goodwill Baptist Church on May 20th got a little heated. Not surprisingly, the paper reports that hopefuls Jeff Smith and Bryan Weaver were on the offensive against incumbent Jim Graham. Smith has been particularly vocal in questioning Graham’s  relationships with developers. Graham has responded that his dealings with developers has been appropriate and he has been able to bring development to Ward 1 while preserving the Ward’s diversity and social fabric.

So with about 4 months to go, what do you think? Among these candidates, do you know who you’ll be voting for? If you could ask each of them just one question, what would that be?

    i’ve worked with Weaver and Smith. Both years ago, but both seemingly good peoples. i’m more certain of Weaver.

    Graham lost me after suggesting we bail out Donatelli’s Park Place condo fiasco.
