For chairman, I enthusiastically support Phil Mendelson. He is the right person for today. He is a good government candidate in the style of former Council Chair David A. Clarke. While I haven’t always supported Phil, he is an acknowledged leader in securing marriage equality in the District and has stood with the LGBT community on all issues. He is a hard-working, low-key member of the Council who they elected to the position of chair after the resignation of Kwame Brown. He is intelligent, fair and diligent and works full-time to make the lives of the people of the District better.
