Politcal Poll

Photo detail

Community leader Lavern Chatman emphasized her community roots during her speech. Her father had been an auto mechanic and her mother a postal worker here, still living in the Mount Vernon area. Chatman said she will employ a “new approach” to “get things done in the government. I've been getting things done in the community and now I want to do it in the House. If we put a community organizer in the White House, we can put a community leader in the House.”
