I don’t have to tell you how high the stakes are in this year’s election - democracy is literally on the ballot. As we continue to address the COVID-19 pandemic and confront racism in our criminal justice system, there are critical races right here in DC whose outcomes will shape our city for years to come. That’s why I’m writing today to share my enthusiastic support for Ed Lazere for DC Council At-Large.
I was the first of many who endorsed Ed’s campaign - because I trust and admire his expertise and consistent advocacy for District residents. It is exactly what the Council needs at this challenging time. Ed has studied the finances of the District of Columbia for 20 years, always focused on a balanced budget that prioritizes our most vulnerable communities. This pandemic has shown more than ever that we need leaders with competence, expertise, and empathy matter more than ever. I’m proud to support Ed because I know he will bring all that and more to the DC Council.
Since I endorsed Ed in April, he has gone on to win the support of DC Councilmembers Elissa Silverman and Brianne Nadeau, Ward 5 State Board of Education member Zachary Parker, Ward 4 Council Democratic nominee Janeese Lewis George, and more than 25 leading progressive organizations. That’s because he’s speaking to the issues DC voters care about - like closing the digital divide for DC’s students and reimagining how to achieve public safety without over-policing. You can learn more about Ed’s record and his vision for a more just and equitable DC at https://www.edfordc.com/.
Believe it or not, ballots are being mailed to DC voters right now, and yours should be arriving in the coming week. Whether you choose to vote by mail, return your ballot to a ballot drop-box, or vote in-person at an early vote center or an Election Day vote center, I hope you’ll join me in casting a vote for Ed Lazere for DC Council At-Large.
Thank you, and stay safe.
