Washington, DC –
Today, Sekou Biddle, candidate for Council At-Large (D) announced his support of the DC Public Trust Campaign. The campaign’s goal is to end corporate contributions to District of Columbia political campaigns through a ballot initiative during the 2012 general election.
Statement from Sekou Biddle:
“The DC Council has simply failed to create the transparent and accountable government that the residents deserve. This initiative will bring our campaign finance laws up to the same level as the federal government and most other states, holding our elected officials to the most basic disclosure requirements.
However, it is simply not enough to pass this ballot initiative, we must elect a Council that is committed to creating a more transparent and inclusive government. It is truly unfortunate that the citizens have to pick up the Council’s slack on enacting such a common sense solution. We can do better and deserve better from our elected officials.”Read More..

Your early support has been crucial to building the great momentum we have in this campaign heading into 2012. A lot has happened since I launched my campaign for the Council at-large seat on November 4 including a successful first fundraising report.Read More..

Today I am declaring my candidacy for the Democratic nomination to the at large seat on the Council of the District of Columbia to be chosen by the voters on April 3, 2012. It is my intention, with the help of District residents, to win.
A dark cloud hangs over our city and our politics. Literally hundreds of District voters have shared with me their disappointment and even disgust with the quality of our public debate and public decision-making. On the one hand we work long and hard to assert our legitimate claim to full home rule and statehood. On the other hand we embarrass ourselves with sloppy decisions, unclear priorities and political mischief.Read More..
