Yesterday, the Metro Washington Council held its Voter Education Forum with Prince George’s Board of Education candidates Shayla Adams (District 4), Raaheela Ahmed (District 5), Ed Burroughs (District 8), Kenneth Harris (District 7), and David Murray (District 1). The forum served as a meet-and-greet for MWC delegates, who had an opportunity to talk directly with the labor-backed Prince George’s County BOE candidates and discuss the issues important to the labor community. The meeting concluded with an overview of ballot initiatives by Delegate Alonzo Washington. “We are just 20 days away from the last day to vote!” says MWC Political Director David Stephen. DC voting has already begun (learn more here) and tonight the Metro Council teams up again with UNITE HERE Local 25 for a virtual phone bank for Council-endorsed DC At-Large candidate Ed Lazere from 5 – 8:00 pm for his campaign’s Union Week. “All you need is a phone and your computer,” says Stephen.
