Congrats to all the 2012 election winners. You can find all of the DC election results here.

Anyone else hit the streets to celebrate last night? How did the celebrations compare to those after 2008?

    Aww, now I wish I’d be out on the streets last night. Although I enjoyed being at home with my cozy fire, chips and queso, and smores!

      me too! but brrrrrrrr

  • Looks like fun, except for the idiot standing on someone’s car. If the celebrations were anything like 2008, then a lot of people are sleeping in this morning.

  • Can we talk about how Don “Let’s have a blanket alcohol license moratorium on U Street” Whittels was soundly defeated?

    Congrats to DAVID GROSSO for defeating the lazy, corrupt, and ineffective Michael Brown, who only won his seat originally by running as an Independent against a no-name Republican (after Carol Schwartz was ousted by Patrick Mara) with his daddy’s (Ron Brown, of Clinton era fame) political machine behind him. This was a great example of grass roots politics winning! Now go out there and clean up DC gov, David.

    • Absolutely. That was a nice surprise. Brown was worthless.

    • Very pleased about the David Grosso victory.

      It’s a good news story. But we have a lot more work to do and he’s going to need our support next time around.

    Anyone have any info on ANC races yet?

  • ET

    Don’t know how final these numbers are:


  • ANC B1-12 voter

    Dan Wittels’ crushing last-place finish among the four candidates in the ANC B1-12 race, where he earned barely 11 percent of the vote, puts squarely to rest the idea that the “Shaw Dupont Citizens Alliance” speaks for that neighborhood or that the neighborhood in any way supports the draconian measures the SDCA would impose on both it and the broader U Street community to stop development dead in its tracks — including the SDCA’s proposed and far-reaching liquor license moratorium. If Mr. Wittels, a vocal and founding board member of SDCA, cannot even garner support from his own immediate neighbors for ANC rep, how can the organization that has fronted his candidacy claim that it speaks for anyone beyond its own tiny membership?

    The SDCA and that man have about as much support in our neighborhood as Mitt Romney.
