Orange quits Pepco to run for council chairman
Former Ward 5 council member Vincent Orange resigned Tuesday from his job as a vice president at Pepco, signaling that he is preparing to run for D.C. Council chairman in the Democratic primary in September.
"There was a great celebration at Pepco today as Vince goes on to pursue other options, as we try to analyze the next steps," said Sean Metcalf, a close friend and associate.
Metcalf stopped short of confirming that Orange will jump into the race, which would pit him against council member Kwame R. Brown (D-At Large).
Council member Jack Evans (D-Ward 2) said last week that he is "unlikely to run," despite an earlier announcement that he would compete for the seat that would be vacated by incumbent Vincent C. Gray, who is running for mayor.
