SHADOW: Get Fired Up for Statehood
Adam Eidinger, U.S. Shadow Representative (DC) Candidate Kicks off
General Election Campaign; Challenges Incumbent Ray Browne
WASHINGTON, DC Whats hotter than both summers in DC and the mayoral
signature scandal? SHADOW! On Saturday, September 21, Adam Eidinger,
Candidate for DC Shadow U.S. Representative will kick off his general
election campaign with SHADOW, the hottest party for DC Statehood.
SHADOW is an outdoor party at the corner of 18th and Columbia Road in
Adams Morgan. (Last week was rained out) It will include fire-eating,
dancing, and spinning stilt walkers who are part of the DC / Baltimore
Burning Man contingency (more info see http://www.Calefaction.org). It
will also feature live music from Martin Thomas and local DJs.
WHO: Adam Eidinger, Candidate for DC Shadow U.S. Representative and
the DC Statehood Green Party with stilt walkers, fire eaters, fire
jugglers, fire spinners, the DC Burning Man contingency and live music
WHAT: SHADOW an outdoor party for DC Statehood
WHEN: Saturday, September 21, 2002 8:00 PM to 12:00 Midnight
WHERE: The Center of Adams Morgan: 18th and Columbia Rd.
We are doing something different with SHADOW. We are bringing the
campaign for DC Statehood out of the shadows and into the streets.
SHADOW will show that we are fired up about DC Statehood and ready for
the general election. Eidinger said.
DC Statehood has been a forgotten issue under our current Shadow U.S.
Representative Ray Browne (D-DC). Instead of making DC Statehood a hot
issue, Browne has focused on getting endorsements from city councils
across the country, says Eidinger. My campaign is injecting life into
this essential fight for local control of our lives. I expect upwards
of 500 to 1000 people to attend. Its going to be OFF THE HOOK!
Most people in DC dont even know who Ray Browne is. He has hidden in
the shadows and has done little to make DC Statehood a reality. We need
something new. We need a change, Eidinger said.
Eidinger has spent all summer using unconventional methods of gaining
awareness for DC Statehood. He has participated in many banner drops of
the 30-foot DC Statehood flag and walked around neighborhoods on stilts.
Additionally, he has knocked on thousands of doors in every Ward in DC
and talked to thousands of people.
Adam endorses the DC Statehood Green Party platform and advocates full
voting representation in the U.S House and Senate, keeping community
institutions like DC General Hospital, libraries and city services open
and under public control, local power over all branches of DC government
& budget, eliminating federal oversight of DCs local budget, giving all
DC residents the right to vote in local elections, and ensuring that
local ballot initiatives are implemented.
