Liberal team seeks to be Washington City Council machine | Beaufort County Now | 4 white liberals seek Council control

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

A liberal team has been formed to seek control of the Washington City Council, and its ringleader has posted about it on social media.  Roland Wyman, who moved to Washington from Maine put up a social media post in which he listed the members of this white liberal team - himself, Virginia FInnerty, Betsy Kane, and Lou Hodges.  This team has not included any black members or any conservatives or even moderates.  Word is that black Democrats are fuming at not being included.

This is the first effort to bring machine politics to Washington city government since the Chamber of Commerce elected a three person team in 1979, which operated in lockstep as a political machine.  Its members were widely ridiculed as "Winkin', Blinkin", and Nod". and all went down to defeat in the 1981 city council election.  Of course, most of the members of the present liberal team were not even living in Washington then.

The political guru of this liberal machine is reputedly a Democrat member of the county Board of Elections.

Welcome to Tammany Hall, Washingtonians!
