The Election Cycle Begins

Recommended Posts

Nikkidix    0

In another week, the flood gates of politicians will hit us like

a Political Tsunami.

 

Councilwoman Kathy Patterson has made it clear that she will run for

the Chairmanship of the D.C. City Council and take on the likes of

Jack Evans and Jim Graham. Sounds like political suicide to most.

 

So all of us in Ward 3 will have to pick a new council member but

who?

 

The rumor mill has it that ANC Commissioner Nancy Mac Wood might run

for Ward 3 city council. Other ANC Commissioners and outsiders think

this would be a disastrous effort because:

 

1. She does not have the financing to back a campaign;

 

2. She does not have enough support throughout Ward 3;

 

3. She has too many enemies;

 

4. Her negative demeanor proceeds her;

 

5. Her reputation among various organizations and businesses that

support candidates is very bad and they would support anyone but her;

 

6. She is an insider and Spin Doctors say DC voters will once again

pick outsiders more or less like Vincent Gray, Kwame Brown and Amy

Bowman and especially in Ward 3 which will probably support someone

who has not been involved in DC Government before.

 

 

As for the resurrection of Erik Gaull, he will probably rear his

head again ignoring the facts:

 

1. That the media last time round handed him his head on a rusty

platter;

 

2. That most in Ward 3 see him as a GADFLY;

 

3. The League of Women Voters judged him to be poorly informed and

in the minority on the issues;

 

4. That many believe that he is being controlled by the old Marion

Barry Machine and his last campaign was behind closed door being

directed by none other than Harold Brazil who voters finally booted

out after mischievous behavior.

 

 

Now about this newcomer Jonathan Rees. ( www.dc2006.net )Little is

known about him other than:

 

1. That he has a good reputation in the business/healthcare industry

as being someone who can create jobs, generate income and can do it

while also cutting budgets without affecting quality;

 

2. That he is seen as being very reliable, outgoing, friendly and

does actually take the time to talk to people instead of having a

staffer handle it;

 

3. That he tends to act in the best interest of people who earn

between $35k - $80k a year who he sees as being the backbone of DC;

 

4. That he will not align himself with other political leaders,

groups but travels the political highway as a lone ranger appealing

to Mom & Pa Kettle and settling his loyalty with such;

 

5. That he can be found at nights walking the streets of Ward 3

putting up his posters and distributing his flyers while chatting

with voters along the way thus giving him a major advantage in

reaching voters first;

 

6. That Ward 3 has the highest number of healthcare workers in DC

and that several of the healthcare organizations are quietly backing

Rees not with money but encouraging their members to vote for him

for their job security and the possibility of tort reform happening

in DC.; but

 

7. Yet, little else about him is known other than he is really gun-

ho, a bit overwhelming but he is a clean slate and has no obligations.

 

I think we will see Linda Cropp as out next mayor, Jim Graham as our next City Council Chairman and any newcomer as our Council Member.

Hi Nicole,

Very informative information. I really want to know who is proactive in getting representation for the people in the District. I moved here from Maryland and

I love my new neighborhood. But, the taxation without representation really

bothers me.

 

Is their any candidate out there that might make a dent in Congress?

 

Thanks

The taxation without representation has been a sticky issue.

 

So far none of our council members have even tried to make a dent in it and that is why we should elect this time round some new faces.

 

In my interview of Jonathan Rees, he believes the Feds should either give us representation or exempt DC residents from paying federal income taxes as is granted the five US Territories.

 

I would put my money on Rees to get a lot more done on the council than who we now have.

Ain't no such thing, just some freak fan of J. Rees doing a poor job of pretending to be different people and spamming on his behalf.

I found out a little more about Mr. Rees. He has an interesting background, which makes me agree that these people are made up. Here's an article that mentions him: http://mishpat.net/cyberlaw/archive/update15.shtml

Mr. Rees should be alittle more careful with those emails. Sigh. He's complaining now that he and 5 other "supporters" are getting kicked off local listservers for his political posts. More like rantings of someone in need of some attention.

:( Sigh.

How is it that Mr. Rees could think that he could get away with inventing people? It's so obvious that these people who are shilling for Rees don't exist, yet they're continued to allow to post for him on various email lists.

 

Reported on http://mishpat.net/cyberlaw/archive/update15.shtml: "[T]he entire US D.C. judiciary received an e-mail filled with

vulgarities and aimed at Superior Court Judge John Bayly Jr. The

message revealed that the author was Jonathan Rees. At the time, Judge

Bayly was presiding over Rees' divorce case, which had been going on

for eight years. Bayly ordered that Rees show cause why he should not

be held in contempt for violating a previous judge's 1992 order

prohibiting him additional filings in the divorce matter without

judicial approval."

Is the Rees campaign over? Rees and his supporters usually post to email lists a lot, but my neighborhood email list hasn't heard a peep from Rees in a week.

Interesting how the Rees campaign just silently went away. After lots of messages on email lists supporting Rees for Council, there's nothing. The Tenleytown and Ward3 lists used to be very busy with stuff about Rees.

 

No annoucement, no explanation as to why Rees withdrew. Oh well. It was interesting while it lasted.

No wonder he quit the race for city council!

Hey J.T.,

 

You gave us dead link to something you claim about this candidate Rees.

 

Did you know that Jim Graham and most of our council members had very ugly divorces, we held almost in contempt in court so what is the beef if what you say is true.

 

I work at the DC Superior Court and we all know Judge Bayly is an ######. He is anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-feminist and he tries to force his religious views on litigants.

 

Judge Bayly is not liked by most of the other judges here but that is no secret so if somebody like Rees told him to shove it, then I'll definitely vote for Rees for having the guts to telling that ###### off.

 

I have to work with Judge Bayly and he is a right-winged nut job.

This person J.T. in attacking Rees fails to inform readers that Judge Bayly while openly condems homosexuality, is a homosexual in the closet and J.T. is his lover and was very upset over several people attacking Judge Bayly especially attacks that came from the Confederate Memorial Associations and private litigants.

 

J.T. should have disclosed his motive, namely, he is still angry over anyone who says anything ill of his lover Judge Bayly.

Doesn't matter what you think. Rees' campaign is winding down, as can be seen from how quiet he's become on neighborhood listserves.
