Continuing his citywide push to talk to as many voters as possible, mayoral candidate Vincent Orange was welcomed at a meet-and-greet, hosted at the home Natalia Luis and Antonio Montiero, just up Foxhall Road from Georgetown, Saturday evening, March 8. Another co-host was Cidalia Luis-Akbar.
Orange, an at-large council member and Democrat, declared his candidacy for mayor last November and said he is focused on “leaving no one behind” and is known for his advocacy of a living wage bill as well as an affordable housing bill on the District Council.
While trailing in the polls behind fellow candidates, such as Mayor Vincent Gray and council members Muriel Bowser and Jack Evans, Orange said he is deterred, despite calls by one Washington Post columnist for some candidates to drop out of the race.
The Democratic Primary for D.C. mayor will be held April 1.
