January 21, 1978: D.C. City Councilman Marion Barry today officially announced his running in the D.C. mayoral election at the Kingsman School in his home precinct, the 81st. After receiving congratulations from his constituents, he left the school with Effi Cowell and other campaign workers to campaign from door to door across the street from the school. The issue in the mayoral race is "leadership ... chosen to do the people's bidding," Barry said.
