DC Vote’s Executive Director not a DC resident?

Wash Syndicate

 

At a recent gathering of DC’s establishment and emerging journalists a discussion about DC Vote’s tactics and lack of success in securing DC a vote revealed an interesting point of contention; DC Vote’s Executive Director Ilir Zherka is not a DC resident and taxpayer. WTF?  

That’s not cool. This issue is known to fire up, even more than usual, one of DC Voting Rights’ most go hard/ die-hard and reckless advocates according to one of the city’s most storied print and broadcast journalists of recent and contemporary memory.  

The Syndicate will only address DC Statehood further when city politicos, media, and advocacy organizations get the last laugh on the 1976 Academy Award winning film, “All The President’s Men.”  

Until the film’s mocking of DC Statehood efforts is no longer current, who cares about this, really? Besides the crazies.

    DC needs every single advocate it can get. The foremost question isn’t residence – afterall, there are advantages to living where one is equal. The question is about commitment to winning equal rights. I think Ilir has shown he wants that. Internally, activists may disagree on strategy. They should spend more time agreeing on the game plan, perhaps. Nobody advances if the few who car enough to lift a finger fight. FREE DD (in my lifetime)!!!!
