Dear Washingtonians,

Thank you all for helping us kick off #FreshStartFeb at our Open House! My executive team and I were eager to open our doors and chat with so many of you. We hope you enjoyed checking out our new offices. The event was just the first of more than 30 community events planned across all 8 wards this month. We will be announcing more ways for you to connect with us throughout the month.  If you missed the Open House, you can view our Storify here.     

With Fresh Start February in full swing, I hope to see you at one of our upcoming Budget Engagement Forums where you can provide input to help shape the District's priorities. With DC residents at the table, we will prioritize closing the gaps and giving everyone a fair shot by investing in education, job training and affordable housing. The Budget Engagement Forums are scheduled for Thursday, February 19 at Wilson High School at 7 pm; Saturday, February 21 at Anacostia High School at 1 pm; and Monday, February 23 at Dunbar High School at 7 pm. We want to hear from you as we prepare next year's budget.  Using your tablet, mobile device, or even a sheet of paper, let us know your budget priorities by filling in our graphic and posting it to one of our social media channels.  We will retweet and repost some of your #freshstart ideas!
