Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians,

Over the past several weeks, we’ve celebrated some important milestones – with getting tourists back to DC and with ridership on Metro – and we’ve welcomed new employers and organizations to DC. Last weekend, thousands of people came to our city for festivals downtown. We saw people out in neighborhoods across all eight wards celebrating Art All Night and the culture of DC.

This week, we celebrated the the start of the new fiscal year. Our approved budget allows us to move big ideas forward, and on October 1st, that budget went into effect. Our comeback is underway, and the investments we will make in this new fiscal year will allow us to do even more for our residents, our neighborhoods, and our businesses.

That includes investments in our residents and businesses like the ones we celebrated on Wednesday.  [ [link removed] ]

fair shot

We’re going to continue to invest in and support the key to our comeback’s success: our people. Public servants help get things done for our people, and we need DC residents more than ever to come work for DC Government. 

DC is hiring and if you want to earn a great salary, receive great benefits, and make a difference for your community, we encourage you to apply. Visit to apply for an open position. Be part of a team of 33,000+ extraordinary employees that are shaping the future of our city.
