Silverman Likes His Chances

Ward 2 council challenger Cary Silverman, who showed up at the polling site at Foundry United Methodist Church at 16th and P Streets NW, is feeling upbeat.

"We have a very good chance of winning today," he told the Post's Michael E. Ruane. "We have a great message and people are feeling that we haven't had a councilmember thats focused on our neighborhood issues over the last couple of years. We're going to have a close race and I think we're going to win.

"We have vacant properties that are lining our streets...we have crime that in some areas is still out of control. We have small businesses that are going under...and generally there's a feeling of non-responsiveness."

The Rev. Jim Storms, 61, a Catholic priest told Ruane that he had voted for Silverman. "Jack's been good, but he's been doing this too long. I think it's time for somebody who's a little more focused on neighborhoods."
