Evans Calls Foggy Bottom and Dupont Residents Mean
By 4:15 p.m. there had been 310 votes cast in Precinct 6 at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Ward 2. Council member Jack Evans said the turnout was typical.
In 2004, there were 314 total Democratic votes during the day. In 2006, during the mayoral race in which Mayor Fenty ran, there were a total of 567 cast during the day.
"That's good," he said when he heard today's turnout.
Evans arrived, after a swing through Foggy Bottom. Characterizing his opponent Cary Silverman's support, he said, "He's got the malcontents in the ward. To use the word 'activists' for them isn't accurate."
Evans added, "In Foggy Bottom and Dupont, people are mean-spirited. They wait every four years and show up to be mean."
