I want to send my most heartfelt thank you to every single person who dared to dream with this campaign. In the days leading up to the election, people cried, prayed, and believed. Against a political machine, we kept marching forward and growing. We tapped into a well of hope in our city that had been buried for a long time. We may not have gotten all the way there this time, but what we inspired can’t be undone. Together, we brought hope, we lifted up the voices of people who felt unheard, and we changed the trajectory of our city.
The chapter is turning because hundreds of everyday people across our city put everything they had into this movement - from knocking doors in the snow to standing in the heat for hours on Election Day - with no interests other than the good of DC.
Thank you for the sacrifice. Thank you for believing in this movement before it was clear. You all mean the world to me. We built this campaign on the belief that our city can work for all our residents, that we can elect a government we can trust, and that we can realize DC’s full potential. I still believe in this vision and I’m not done working to make it a reality.
To the tens of thousands of DC residents who cast their ballot for change, keep hoping, keep believing, keep demanding more. The work didn’t stop on Tuesday - not even close. Together, we will do incredible things.
