Ward 1 Democrats chair resigns


The chair of the Ward 1 Democrats resigned last Wednesday.

Brian Footer told an emergency meeting of the Ward One Dems that his new job as a health consultant with Deloite Touche, a multi-billion dollar consulting, advisory and tax service company, did not give him enough time to continue as chair.

“I will still participate in any way I can,” Footer told meeting attendees.

He will be temporarily succeeded by the group’s vice chair, Camille Glover, until the group’s May elections. Glover said she has not yet decided if she will run for the chair position.

Glover announced the organization will hold a “general body meeting” on April 10 at the Thurgood Marshall Center at 1816 12th St. NW. Then, on the 19th, it will sponsor a candidate forum for the Ward 1 and City Council chair Democratic candidates at St. Stephen’s Church at 1525 Newton St. NW from 6 to 9 p.m.
