* * * SCWARTZ ENDORSES CROPP FOR MAYOR * * *
"Tomorrow there is an important election in D.C. and I could no longer sit by without letting my opinion be known. We need Linda Cropp as our mayor. She offers proven capability and stability, as well as a proven record of getting the job done. As I've closely watched this election, I've often wondered, what are we doing here? Are we electing a mayor or are we selecting a track and field star? Okay, maybe Linda won't lead in the 50-yard dash. But remember, just a few years ago this was a city on its knees, and Linda Cropp helped lead us out of those dark days. We are at a critical juncture and now is not the time to take a risk when it comes to filling the most powerful position in our government. This city is fortunate to have such a seasoned and experienced leader as Linda Cropp. The biggest victory for D.C. tomorrow would be to continue to have Adrian Fenty's energetic service on the council, and to have Linda Cropp elected as our mayor, leading us to greater prosperity and compassion for all our citizens."
-- D.C. Councilmember Carol Schwartz (R - At-Large)
