Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians,

In 2020, the challenge for all of us – at DC Government and for community leaders and residents across the District – is to continue building a DC that is inclusive and diverse, a DC filled with opportunity. We have a lot to be proud of, but also a lot left to accomplish. We have housing to build, jobs to create, an environment to protect – and none of it can wait. I’m fortunate to have a strong team at my side, ready to tackle these issues with a sense of urgency, and to lead a community always ready and willing to get involved and support their neighbors.

Tomorrow, we will continue the conversation on how we reach our goal of building 36,000 new homes by 2025 at our New Year, New Housing preview. If you are able to join us, register HERE

We also have our annual Budget Engagement Forums coming up in February. At this year's forums, we will focus on how we can work together as a community to build the types of housing our families and residents need in neighborhoods across DC. Learn more about the Budget Engagement Forums, including the Senior Telephone Town Hall, and RSVP HERE

Together, let's create citywide solutions that reflect our DC values.
