Ward 6 Candidate Charles Allen To Launch Bid Today

Charles Allen, former chief of staff to Ward 6 Councilmember Tommy Wells, will formerly launch his campaign for his mentor's seat today. Allen is running as a Democrat in the April 1 primary.

“Having served my Ward 6 neighbors in a variety of roles over the last decade, I am ready and excited to take on the challenge of representing their interests as a member of the DC Council,” said Allen stated in his press release.

“People choose to call Ward 6 home because our neighborhoods are an extension of our living rooms – with great schools you can walk to, parks to gather in, and local businesses that know you by name. These serve as anchors for our communities and we must ensure that all residents see this vision realized,” Allen stated.

Charles Allen, his wife Jordi Hutchinson, and their daughter Cora Neal, live at 15th and D Streets NE.

Allen has chosen a unique method of launching his campaign, he will attend a series of events hosted by residents in their living rooms. The first, this evening, will be held at the home of Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner Francis Campbell (6B10) in Hill East at 1800 Burke Street, SE at 6:30 p.m.
