What Democratic Slate Did Your Precinct Select?
A closer look at Tuesday's Democratic primary for Alexandria City Council.
David Fromm, a longtime officer in the Del Ray Citizens Association and loyal Patch reader, put together this map depicting the top six vote-getters at each of the city’s 26 precincts in Tuesday’s Democratic primary for City Council.
Tim Lovain, Justin Wilson, Allison Silberberg, Del Pepper, Paul Smedberg and John Chapman each earned nominations from a field of 14 candidates, but, as Fromm wrote in an email, “it is interesting to see what the slate for city council would have looked like if very local interests had prevailed.”
In general, candidates did well in and near the precincts where they live. Lovain told Patch on Tuesday that his large totals at the George Mason and Blessed Sacrament precincts in his neighborhood went a long way in helping him secure the most votes (5,388) of any candidate.
In the George Washington Middle School precinct, Wilson was the top vote-getter, followed by Lovain, Smedberg, Sean Holihan, Chapman and Pepper.
At the Mount Vernon Recreation Center precinct, Wilson took the most votes, followed by Smedberg, Lovain, Pepper, Holihan and Silberberg.
The Cora Kelly Recreation Center precinct was a little different; Pepper was the leading vote-getter, followed by Wilson, Victoria Menjivar, Sammie Moshenberg, Chapman and Smedberg.
At the Maury School precinct, Wilson took the most votes, followed by Smedberg, Lovain, Menjivar, Melissa Feld (a parent of two Maury students) and Silberberg.
In the Old Town-area precincts, Smedberg took the most votes in the Ladrey Senior Building, Fire Department Headquarters and Durant Center.
The City Hall precinct’s slate included Silberberg, Arthur Peabody, Menjivar, Moshenberg, Boyd Walker and Smedberg.
