With the results of the election now pretty clear, Kwame Brown’s At-Large council seat will need to be filled by special election. Of course, in the meantime, someone will need to be the At-Large councilman in his seat, and that’s where the DC Democratic Party comes in. They’ll be handling the appointment process. If you want a shot at the appointment, here’s what you need:
- You must be a legal DC resident for at least one year
- You must be registered as a Democrat with the DCBOEE by January 5th, 2010
- You must circulate and return nominating petitions with 1,000 valid signatures of registered Democrats in DC, with 100 per Ward, and 27 signatures of the District of Columbia Democratic State Committee (DCDSC)
- Statement of Qualification and a Biographical Sketch (150 words or less, each)
- Declaration of Candidacy Form at the time of filing their petitions
You have to do that in the window that starts today, and runs through next Tuesday. So, get your signature engines running, and you, too, can be considered by the DCDSC for a short four-month tenure as a Councilman in Washington DC.
