Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians,

Four and a half years ago, I took office and pledged to bring a fresh start to Washington, DC. Together, we committed to do more with more—to invest in and create programs and resources that will give more Washingtonians a fair shot. 

As you will see in our most recent progress report, the past 54 months have been memorable and we have many triumphant moments to look back on. Our historic investments in housing have allowed us to build thousands of affordable homes for DC families. We have driven down homelessness, and made good on our promise to close DC General. Today, DC is the number one city in the nation for entrepreneurial talent, and that didn't happen by chance - we got here by investing in small businesses and local entrepreneurs.

But our work is not done. We must also look within to realize our greatest challenges and act with urgency to address inequality. As a community, we should feel motivated by the progress we have already made and optimistic that the best is yet to come.
