Lou D'Ovidio for Delegate, 1986

Lou D'Ovidio was a teacher and MCPS administrator for 25 years and served two terms on the Takoma Park City Council before running for a District 20 house seat in 1986. He ran on a slate with Delegate Ida Ruben (who was running for Senate), Delegate Sheila Hixson and House challenger Robert Berger. D'Ovidio finished fifth in the primary behind Peter Franchot, Hixson, Dana Dembrow and Berger. D'Ovidio went on to work for many years as Council Member Mike Subin's Chief of Staff and now works for Roger Berliner. He remains one of the most respected veterans of Rockville. Here are two of his lit pieces from 1986. One of them even features a quote from Blair Lee!
