Got an email from fellow progressive activist Peter Kovar that he is running for the Ward 1 council seat in Takoma Park being vacated by Seth Grimes.
Kovar worked for many years as an aide to Congressman Barney Frank, as well as for several Hill committees. We met during the 2006 Raskin campaign and have remained friends since then. He was my successor as chair of Heather Mizeur’s gubernatorial campaign and we also both sit on the steering committee of Progressive Neighbors. He will be a strong candidate for the council.
