Delaney Loses Bigtime; Single Beers DOOMED

According to the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics, 34 people voted for a write-in candidate in ANC 6B08 yesterday. That might mean 34 people voted for Arthur Delaney, the pro-single-beers candidate.

Unfortunately for single beers, over 800 people voted for four-term incumbent Neil Glick. He sent an email bragging about it to his family and friends with a little note to Arthur Delaney at the bottom.

Thank you, Arthur for your spirited campaign.

I just checked the unofficial results this morning, where I reicieved 818 votes — the highest amount of votes for a candidate in ANC 6B, and second highest in all of Ward 6, and the 8th highest votes received in all of the City for ANC Commissioners. You might have received as many as 34 votes.

I am glad you interjected a discussion about the sale of singles in our neighborhood. And the voters made their choice: they support the ban on singles.

Getting the endorsement of your employer, the Washington City Paper is very impressive, and I commend you for that.

And choosing to put yourself out there and being a candidate takes guts. I wish more people in America would do the same. We'd have a better political system if we did.

Can I buy you a six pack?

Neil Glick
5 term ANC Commissioner 6B08

    Real classy note. Hey guess what big-head... the victory which you are crowing about so arrogantly was against a write-in who entered the race two days ago. Wow! Congratulations! What a shocker!

    Now that you're done bitch-slapping Delaney, I expect you will go back to things that are slightly harder than winning an ANC election from a write-in candidate, like taking candy from babies.

    Yech. I don't know either of you from Adam but if there's one thing worse than a sore loser, it's a snotty winner.

    Awesome.

  • McLain!

    I would insert a witty comment on this awesome debate, but I'm WASTED from drinking the fancy single beers they sell at my fancy beer and wine store in Colombia Heights. What's a ANC?
