Posted on: March 18, 2013

There’s still time to enter the races for six city council seats, which at press time were all uncontested. Registration is open through March 25, and the election is May 7. The field, so far, consists of: Bart Lawrence (Ward 1); David Hiles (Ward 2 incumbent); Patrick Paschall (Ward 3); and in Ward 5, where both seats will be open, Joseph A. Solomon and Clayton R. Williams.
In that race, the top-vote getter will get the seat currently held by Ruth Ann Frazier, while the runner-up will finish the two years remaining in the term of Nicole Hinds Mofor, who resigned last month. Ward 4 incumbent Carlos Lizanne will not be running for re-election; so far, no one has registered to take his place. For information, visit or call 301.985.5000.
