Our September Candidates Forum for candidates for Attorney General was standing room only with all 5 candidates (Lorie Masters, Karl Racine, Edward Smitty Smith, Lateefah Williams, and Paul Zukerberg) in attendance.
The Attorney General of the District of Columbia is the chief legal officer in DC. Historically, appointed by the Mayor, DC voters approved a charter amendment in 2010 that will make the DC Attorney General an elected position after this year’s election on November 4, 2014. The 2014 elected Attorney General will be decided by and accountable to DC Voters.
Thank you to our guest moderator attorney William W. Taylor, partner at Zuckerman Spaeder LLP, and to the Cleveland Park Library for providing the facility for our forum.
