Catania offers sign-making help for Stewart/Colbert rally
In four days, the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert-sponsored rally on the Mall is expected to attract tens of thousands of liberal and independent-minded voters from within the area and without. Still, local politicians -- busy stumping for votes in more traditional ways -- have paid the rallies little heed.
But David Catania, the independent at-large D.C. Council member seeking a fourth full term, wants to help local attendees out: "Need a Well-Reasoned and Coherent Sign for the Rally?" asks a campaign flier.
If so, Catania is hosting a "Sign-Making Open House" on Friday evening at his Dupont Circle headquarters, complete with "refreshments and sign-making materials so that you can state your thesis in the most intelligible way possible."
Ben Young, Catania's campaign manager, says you don't necessarily need to bring your own slogan, either. "I figure it will be a collaborative experience," he said today.
Catania is running for one of two at-large seats against Democratic incumbent Phil Mendelson, Statehood Green candidate David Schwartzman and independent candidate Richard Urban.
