A Pathway to the Middle Class

Fellow Washingtonians,

I have some exciting news: on Tuesday, March 31st, I will deliver the State of the District Address.  The Address will lay out where we stand on creating a fresh start, highlight our commitment to engagement and integrity and establish how we will create a pathway to the middle class.  It is time to work together to ensure that opportunity is available to all of our residents. 

Will you join me at the historic Lincoln Theatre on Tuesday, March 31st?  Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the program starts at 6:30 p.m. RSVP HERE.

We walked into the doors of the Mayor's Office with close to a quarter billion dollar budget deficit for the next fiscal year.  Throughout February, my Administration and I engaged with residents from all 8 wards at three Budget Engagement forums and over three dozen community meetings in a discussion about how we should fund our priorities and balance the budget.  Your input on the front end of the process is invaluable, so if you missed us, visit budget.dc.gov and join us on March 31st.

With your input, we will work to build an accessible pathway to the middle class by investing in education, job training and affordable housing.
