Is Terry Lynch Running in Ward 1? Ask His Website.
Ward 1 Councilmember Jim Graham already has two challengers in Brianne Nadeau and Bryan Weaver, and Graham hasn't even said whether he'll run for reelection. The field could be even more crowded, though, if gadfly Terry Lynch jumps in.
Lynch—dubbed "Washington's most annoying man" by the Post— has already set up a draft website for his campaign. LL stresses the word "draft" here. Lynch's list of things are important to him reads, in its entirety, "These are the things that are important to me...".
His vision for Ward 1? "I’m running because I can improve our Ward 1."
Lynch, the executive director of the District's Downtown Cluster of Congregations, says he hasn't decided yet whether he'll try to oust Graham. He knows that splitting the challenger vote would help the incumbent win re-election, if Graham decides to run.
"Conceivably," Lynch says. "I'm the one person who could beat him in that race."
