DC COPE Report: Hard Work Pays Off in Ward 5(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)Winning by a landslide, Kenyan McDuffie took nearly 45% of the vote in this Tuesday's Ward 5 Special Election. Labor spent the past several weeks getting out the vote in support of McDuffie by sending out mailings, phone banking, door knocking, putting up signs and running radio and print ads. “It feels good when hard work pays off with a big win” says Metro Council President Jos Williams. “We are proud to support one of our own and look forward to working with him on issues affecting working families. I am confident that he will do the right thing and stick by the working men and women of Ward 5.” - report by Alya Solomon; photo of McDuffie (on left) and Williams at 2012 Emancipation Day Parade by Julia Kann
