My endorsement: Too much progress to turn back
By Wendy Sefsaf
As I drive around my community these days, I am struck by the development that has gone up in just the past few years. In Northwest, we have a new Safeway, the newly renovated Deal Middle School, Fillmore Arts Center/Hardy Middle School and Stoddert Elementary.
We also have the Tenley-Friendship and Georgetown libraries nearly complete, and I see construction beginning at Janney Elementary and Wilson High. I see schools with teachers who are being held to tougher standards, which means that our kids are, too. Our kids also have a new recreation center at Stoddert and a pool at Wilson to enjoy.
Have I read stories about our mayor that have made me wince? Sure I have. However, I’m not willing to walk away from all the progress that has been made. Our city needs to continue on this trajectory, and that is why I am voting for Adrian Fenty.
