C.O.V.E. forum this Thursday, 3-29-2012: Ward 5 candidates Ruth Marshall and Ron Magnus

See this C.O.V.E. announcement from Teri Janine Quinn, President, Bloomingdale Civic Association:

THURSDAYS with Candidates
Community Forums
(forums, not debates!)
March 22 – May 3, 2012

Coalition for Voter Empowerment
Is a voter education initiative, sponsored by a coalition of six civic associations of the West End of Ward 5 in Washington, D.C.
[Bates, Bloomingdale, Eckington, Edgewood, Hanover, and Stronghold Civic Associations]

C.O.V.E. was established in 2006 as a neighborhood coalition to empower and to educate the citizens of Ward 5 within the said civic association boundaries (who were otherwise left out of major outreach and educational opportunities) about the mayoral and Ward 5 Council electoral process.
C.O.V.E. addresses two major factors:
• The historic neglect of the ``West End`` of Ward 5
• The increasing influx of ``new residents`` to the neighborhood – some that may lack general knowledge about the D C politics and its impact on these communities; and the historical change and needs of Ward 5 in particular.
