As a deputy chief of staff to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Darrel Thompson worked on the forefront of economic development and labor issues for one of the nations most prominent politicians.
Since Thompson left the Nevada Democrats office in late September to run for the Ward 6 seat on the D.C. Council, hes set his sights on some decidedly lower-profile subjects around Capitol Hill including the vermin scampering down neighborhood streets.
If you are fortunate enough to have had your alley repaved and rats exterminated, youre in a good place, Thompson said, laying out the priorities of his platform in an interview with CQ Roll Call at the Starbucks on Pennsylvania Avenue Southeast. For many of the residents hes talked to while going door to door campaigning, rats are a problem and theyve become a bigger problem in the winter months when they start seeking refuge in warmer places, such as in homes.
So, rat abatement programs is one major issue that I certainly want to see, said the 43-year-old Northeast D.C. resident who hopes to represent Capitol Hill in the John A. Wilson Building.
turds of a feather, flocking together-those rats.
