Business Group Hears From Mayoral Candidates
Two mayoral candidates stopped by the Georgetown Business Association reception at the Georgetown Ritz-Carlton on South Street March 19. Reta Jo Lewis spoke to the crowd, reminding them of her government experience. The other candidate was well known to the group: Ward 2 council member Jack Evans, who is also running in the Democratic primary for Mayor of D.C. "The mayor will be indicted," said Evan, referring to allegations concerning Mayor Vincent Gray. "We've been here before," he said, adding that if the mayor gets re-elected and then indicted, D.C. "will be the laughing stock of America." Despite such troubling news, the business types still managed to have a good fun at the welcoming Ritz-Carlton.
