Elizabeth Webster, staffer for At-large Councilman Vincent Orange, helps to look after business development in D.C., including persuading film crews to shoot here. So, her going to Los Angeles during Academy Awards week just seemed to be part of the job. The difference is that she believes so strongly in bringing more production work to D.C. that she funded the trip herself; no taxpayer money involved.

Sporting a Sue Wong wardrobe, Webster and friends made the scene at several parties throughout the weekend, all revolving around the Feb. 24 awards ceremony in the Dolby Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. She met with actresses, celebrities and other notables, chatting up D.C. as a great film locale and staying out during Oscars night until 4:30 a.m., Pacific time. Webster was back in D.C. Tuesday morning for an all-day District Council hearing.

Well there could be worse jobs to have :) Elizabeth Webster is a rare find! A genuinely good-hearted person with NOTHING but the best of intentions. Always has been, and I suspect that she always will be!
