Anita Bonds holds onto D.C. Council seat

By  and Published: April 23 | Updated: Wednesday, April 24, 12:20 AM

Incumbent Anita Bonds held on to to her D.C. Council seat Tuesday after fending off five challengers in a special election that drew about 10 percent of eligible voters.

Bonds led fellow Democrat Elissa Silverman 32 percent to 28 percent in unofficial results late Tuesday. Republican Patrick Mara received 23 percent of the vote.

Bonds, 68, declared victory before midnight, saying her election was an affirmation of her three-decade career in D.C. government and politics. “The time is now to make sure this city lives up to its full potential,” Bonds said in a statement. “Let’s do it together.”
