PHOTOS: Georgetown Candidates Forum 2012
Councilmen Michael A. Brown and Vincent Orange joined challengers David Grosso and Mary Brooks Beatty for a candidates forum in Georgetown Friday.
Beatty said being a Republican gives her an advantage on D.C. voting rights with the current Congress because "they hold the keys to this issue." She disagreed with Brown's notion of lobbying for statehood outside the Beltway ("We don't need other states on our side") and thinks "ethics is a huge issue" within the D.C. Council when it comes to "earning our rights."
