One Less for the Clarke Seat

The field of perspective replacements for Yvette Clarke on the City Council is continuing to thin itself out.

A reader forwards this email from Geoffrey Davis, the brother of slain Councilman James Davis:

Greetings Friend,

After exploring the idea of running for City Council’s 2007 special election. We (The James E. Davis political Club) decided not to run, but continue to build better community relationships while providing Educational, Cultural, Political and Social programs.

The James E. Davis Political club will interview candidates and make a collective decision on who we will endorse.

Thank you dearly for your prayers, support and words of wisdom.

your friend in the struggle,

Geoffrey A. Davis, MS
