In a Facebook post this afternoon, DaJuan Gay officially announced hi intent to run for Annapolis Alderman representing Ward 6. Many will remember DaJuan as the organizer of the solidarity march this past summer. DaJuan, 20, is a student at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and a resident of Ward 6.
Currently, Ward 6 is represented by Alderman Kenny Kirby. Kirby has already drawn one opponent in Shaneka Henson who is a Baltimore attorney who also lives in Ward 6. Typically the ward is not too heavily contested, but with the spate of violence in 2016, it is drawing much more interest.
