After a couple of years relaxing in his high chair at Pepco, former Ward 5 City Councilmember and failed 2006 mayoral candidate Vincent Organge is back in the city’s political mix. Last week Orange announced he would oppose the lightweight Kwame Brown in the struggle for perceived power that is the DC Council Chairmanship.
For what Orange lacks in “electablity” he makes with the pure novelty of his existence. In this interest of spectacle, The Syndicate appreciates Orange’s old school blitzkrieg of littering the street with his omnipresent campaign signs. On South Dakota Ave NE there are still signs from his 2006 mayoral effort and Friday morning, less than 12 hours after his campaign announcement, Orange signs were everywhere throughout the main thoroughfares of the city’s southside.
