I want to send a huge thank you to you, the voters of Washington, DC, for your support in my primary election victory!
Election day this year was very different than what I’d planned. I started my morning by helping my oldest daughter, Madison, make a sign so that we could join an early peaceful protest with other families. Afterwards, I dropped her off at home and headed to the vote centers to talk with voters waiting in line. In the evening, I left the polls to head downtown to protest for racial justice at the White House.
As I prepare for the general election on November 3rd, I will continue to keep racial justice as my focus. Inequities are the very root of the District’s issues. I will continue fighting for true affordable housing, closing the achievement gap for our minority students, and employment opportunities for residents.
I want to give a special thanks to my office staff, past and present, who have worked incredibly hard on behalf of DC voters. This election shows that you see their work. I want to thank my campaign team and volunteers who have worked tirelessly for months. And, importantly, to all voters who mailed in ballots or stood in line for hours to vote, thank you!
Together, we will continue the fight for justice and equality.
