A group of angry Shaw residents from ANC Alex Padro’s district have drafted Shaw community activist and COPE Red Hats’s anti-drug/crime leader Mary Sutherland to run for the Advisory Neighborhood Commission 6E-01 seat. The election will be held on November 6th and although Padro, has beaten Sutherland in the past, this outcome may be diffeernent. Padro’s constituients are tired of the vagrants, littering, drinking, selling drugs, robbing and hangingout in his ditrict in the 1500 Bock of 7th Street. NW. “We want to be able to walk to the Shaw subway without being harassed and robbed by disrepectable and out of control youth’s who hangout out at the subway stop daily. I am tired of the shootings and drug dealing at the subway stop and on 7th Street. Padro had years to correct this and he ignored the community.” said Shaw resident Martha.
“Padro only care’s about Padro and what he can get for himself as a commissioner and we want him out of office this time,” said Mr. Thompson.
