When Wally Erb ran for Clerk of the Circuit Court in 2003, he tried to coattail on the previous year's transportation referendum defeat. Like the Axe The Tax Campaign, he used white on red signs with the slogan "No Tax Increase".
Taking the Route 25 towards the Municipal Center yesterday afternoon, I saw Erb's City Council yard signs up in his home neighborhood. They were burgundy and gold. Last night at City Council, he was handing out similar cards, with the 2010 Redskins season schedule on the rear. Of course, Wally is from the Bronx, Giants and Jets territory.
A three-time (soon to be four-time) loser trying to coattail on a bunch of losers.
