Darrel Thompson, candidate for Ward 6 member of the DC City Council, calls for more STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and vocational education, as well as arts and cutting edge technology in schools.

From his website:

Darrel was born in the District of Columbia and has lived on Capitol Hill for almost 20 years. He’s running for City Council because he believes in the future of Ward 6 and the District of Columbia needs new leadership and new ideas in order to overcome new and existing challenges.

Darrel’s experience handling issues affecting the District of Columbia in Congress, along with public service at nearly every level of government, gives him a broader outlook on the challenges facing Ward 6. He is in the race because he believes in achieving a brighter future for Ward 6 and in achieving this, new leaders must foster an environment to enhance economic opportunities for all its residents; this means meaningful job prospects at every skill level.

Thompson joins the Education Town Hall with Thomas Byrd on Thursday, March 27, at 11 a.m. Eastern on We Act Radio. Listen in the DC area on 1480 AM or anywhere via TuneIn. Pod cast available shortly after air time.
