We headed over to Java House at 17th & Q NW Saturday morning for Clark Ray’s campaign kickoff for at At-Large DC Council seat next year.

There was a nice turnout for Ray, with about 50 supporters, including community and political activists as well as ANC 2B-Dupont commissioners.

I counted four of the nine ANC 2B commissioners this morning and Vice Chair Will Stephens gave an introductory speech for Ray, as did LGBT and neighborhood activist Peter Rosenstein. My volunteer experience over the years tells me that this was a good sign for Ray–these are the kind of people you need to run a campaign and win an election.

Just a reminder about a couple of things happening in Borderstan tomorrow.

Farmers’ Market, 14th & U NW. Remember that the 14th and U Farmers’ Market continues into October. You can get info about the market on Facebook and since they have a public page on Facebook, you don’t have to be a registered member of Facebook to go to it. (Got that?) On the northwest corner of 14th and U Streets NW.

Clark Ray for Council Kickoff, 17th & Q NW. At 10 a.m. Clark Ray will officially announce his candidacy for the DC City Council at the corner of 17th and Q Streets NW next to Java House. Ray is kicking off his candidacy in Ward 2 where served as neighborhood service coordinator for former Mayor Anthony Williams. Ray is running for the At-Large seat held by Phil Mendelson; they will be on the ballot in the Democratic Primary in September 2010. (Full disclosure: I know Ray and am supporting him.)
