Elrich out, Ervin In

The Gazette is running a piece that confirms that Valerie Ervin is in the District 5 County Council race (Kensington, Takoma Park and parts of Silver Spring and Wheaton) and that Marc Elrich would be jumping to the at-large Council race. The article mentions that Joy Austin-Lane may be shifting to another race, but doesn’t mention the intentions of Hans Riemer, a long-time progressive leader and Silver Spring activist.

Great analysis of news visuals at http://bagnewsnotes.typepad.com/bagnews/
