Why should voters elect you?
"Because I have a proven history of service, and because District citizens know me to be honest, caring, accessible, responsive and serious about my responsibilities."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?
"The great and valued diversity of our city includes the economic diversity of its citizens. The District's recovery from near-bankruptcy has produced more prosperity, but with prosperity comes new challenges. Some longtime residents are being squeezed out by rapidly escalating real estate assessments and rents. While I certainly welcome -- and have helped to bring about -- better fiscal health, I do not want those who hung in with us during the bad times to be forced out now. As we work to maintain financial health, which is important to our goal of full self-governance, we must also maintain our economic diversity."
