In Ward 7, backing Holmes Norton and a chance to pick AG

Christopher Dean Hopkins

Erica White, 36, made sure to vote today at River Terrace Elementary School on 34th and Eads streets in Northeast. She said she was moved to make sure Eleanor Holmes Norton kept her office.

"It is my duty to come out and vote," she said.

She also v oted for the charter amendment.

"There are no personal feelings," White said. "I just like having the people vote for the person who would best represent our needs and issues."

Herbert Fuller, 44, said he had the opportunity to sit down and talk with several candidates at his business, The Leaky Faucet, in northwest.

Fuller said he had a booth at a job fair hosted by Norton this year at the convention center.

"It worked out. We got some employees. I'm all for jobs," he said as he left River Terrace Elementary.

Yvonne Whitmon, 68, said she is a native Washingtonian who voted the Democratic line. She said she thinks an elected attorney general would help push the statehood issue.

"We're here paying taxes without representation. As far as I'm concerned, this is a state," she said. "I certainly would like for us to have more voting privileges."

Diane hampton said she supported her ANC commissioner Jo-Anne Prue because "she has been instrumental in the sustainment of River Terrace."

The community between H Street and Minnesota Avenue is often overlooked, Hampton said.

People do not understand what the attorney general does. We will end up with a politician instead of a quality lawyer as AG.
