“Lewis George, a member of the DC Democratic State Committee, former deputy attorney general, and attorney in the Office of the State Superintendent of Education, essentially positions herself as the anti-Todd. She resigned from the District in July to campaign full time and plans to officially register her candidacy with the Office of Campaign Finance this Thursday, August 1.
She criticizes Todd’s record on everything from opposition to paid family leave and his vote to repeal Initiative 77, to his vote for what she considers a weakening of the Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act and his support of the sole-source sports gambling contract the Council approved on July 9.
She also disagrees with Todd’s vote not to remove Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans from all Council committees while he is under investigation by the Council and federal law enforcement.”
