WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 10, 2002) – On Saturday, July 13, 2002 Eugene DeWitt Kinlow will formally announce his candidacy for an At-Large Seat on the District of Columbia’s City Council. The campaign will be launched at 11:00 a.m. at the intersection of Howard Road and Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue South East in Anacostia.

"I believe that the District is the gateway to the 21st Century," said Kinlow. "I stand poised to commit the necessary resources to ensure that the District is viewed as a model city. The nation will look to us as an example of excellence in education, providing quality health care, and will emulate the procedures that the District implements for fighting crime."

The event day will also include a neighborhood clean up project focused on revitalizing a historic Ward 8 school that has been dilapidated for years. Kinlow states that fixing up the school would decrease crime in the neighborhood and increase the chance of the property being sold and used for the betterment of the community.

Eugene DeWitt Kinlow is a native Washingtonian who resides in the Ward 8 Bellevue section of Washington, D.C. with his wife Tonya and two children, daughter Tiye and son Eugene II. He has been a successful advocate for the South East, Anacostia area for a number of years. Currently, Kinlow is the Vice Chair of the Consumer Utility Board and Chair of the Advisory Board for Community Harvest. He is also a columnist, photographer, and editorial advisory member on the East of the River Community Newspaper and a board member of the D.C. Heritage Tourism Coalition. "My goal is to make every neighborhood great," said Kinlow. "I want to rebuild Washington, D.C.’s communities with old fashion values."
