On the issues

What is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

My jurisdiction is the entire city. The city faces challenges of restoring ethical integrity to the D.C. government; rooting out government fraud, waste and abuse; ensuring our students have a curriculum and a modern learning environment to prepare them for college and/or succeed in a competitive workforce; creating, providing and connecting D.C. residents to D.C. jobs; building affordable housing and providing access to health care; providing government contracting opportunities for our local businesses; circulating taxpayer dollars within our neighborhoods, leading to a better living environment and a better quality of life; and helping the homeless to succeed and achieve.

Why should voters elect you?

Because I have a record of achievement second to none in this race. I will continue to lead in ethics, education, employment and economic development.
