Real talk about affordability in DC

Dec 5th, 2017 | By | Category: Anacostia, Community, News & Features, Politics & Law

Friends,

Growing up in Columbia Heights, we had people of all different income levels living side by side in our community. From doctors to auto mechanics to plumbers, if you worked hard and played by the rules, you could make it in our city.

Today, that is sadly not the case. If my parents didn’t pass our home to me and my sister, there is no way we would be able to afford a townhouse in Columbia Heights today. That’s not right!

Our seniors need to be able to age in place and have the amenities to keep their quality of life. Our parents need to be assured that they can afford a house big enough for all of their children. And our millennials need to know that they can purchase a home and start a family here in the District.

This is not just about doing what is right for our residents; it is about doing what is best for our city. If the District of Columbia is going to truly thrive, we need to be a place where a diverse group of people can afford to live.

I’m running for DC Council, so we can have someone at the table that is going to ensure we all don’t get priced out of our city. We can bring in new residents and ensure those living here can afford to remain at the same time.

In just over a week on December 11, we have to publicly report our fundraising numbers for the first time. We need to show the strength of our movement and we can only do that with your help.

Please consider chipping in and making a donation by clicking on the button below. With your support, we can win this race and do big things for all of us on the issue of affordability here in the District.
