Issues Facing Our EVERYDAY DC

For municipal purposes, including local elections and city planning, Washington, D.C., is divided into eight wards. Each ward contains tens of thousands of residents and is represented by its own councilmember.

  • Make DC an Anti-Poverty City (1,2,5,7,8)

    As mayor I would:

    • Increase affordable housing by regulating requirements for banks funding development projects in the city
    • Create checks and balances for the use of housing production trust fund resources to eliminate misappropriations
    • Streamline DHS and homeless service processes and create online services
    • Enhance partnerships with Veteran Affairs
    • Provide sensitivity training to federal and local law enforcement agencies with the assistance of social workers
    • Invest in job training for the present and future workforce
  • Provide Education Equality (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8)

    As mayor I would:

    • Ensure equitable disbursement of funding across school systems
    • Implement social programs for students experiencing homelessness
    • Increase access to city broadband and electronic devices
    • Integrate mental health services in DCPS and DCPCS
  • Advocate for Small Businesses

    As mayor I would:

    • Streamline the Certified Business Enterprise (CBE) process
    • Create opportunities for district residents to set up businesses that can qualify for government contracts
    • Incentivize businesses to hire local D.C. residents
    • Implement strong recovery plans for businesses affected by COVID-19
  • Increase Public Safety & Quality of Life (1,2,7,8)

    As mayor I would:

    • Partner with ANC’s to create neighborhood watches to promote community accountability
    • Support mental health awareness & wellness programming
    • Revive arts, culture, and youth programing
    • Bring awareness to the District’s unwanted firearm program
    • Revitalize youth and senior programming
  • Supporting the LGBTQIA+ Community

    Leading the Fight for Rights and Supporting the LGBTQIA+ Community

    Over the past 20+ years I have been an ally, supporting the most powerful movement for equality our country has ever seen. Despite the progress that has been achieved, our most marginalized citizens are still suffering from violence, discrimination and fear. My goal as mayor is to ensure that all LGBTQIA+ people, and particularly those who are trans, people of color and HIV+, are treated as full and equal citizens across Washington, DC.
