Dear Ward 8 Residents,

The election results are in, and DC has spoken. I congratulate all the winners and those who fell short but ran a great race. It is a challenging journey running a political campaign. I commend everyone that stepped into the race to make this city better. Your efforts and sacrifice do not go unnoticed.

Additionally, DC voters passed Initiative 82, a measure to phase out the tipped minimum wage by 2027. Beginning next year, once the initiative kicks in, the tipped minimum wage of $5.35 must increase gradually every year until it is equal to the full minimum wage.

By 2027, employers can no longer rely on gratuity but must pay all their workers the full prevailing minimum wage. It would not officially ban tips but remove them from calculating how much workers earn.

Everyone agrees that we must do more to ensure that working-class Washingtonians can afford to live and thrive in this city. With the passing of Initiative 82, we are moving closer to that point.

In solidarity,
Trayon White, Sr.
Councilmember, Ward 8

Gentrification is not a fast death. It’s a slow warming over that works its way into the body. There is a discovery that things have changed and then a new kind of normal. One day it’s a corner store, the next it’s an organic-hot-yoga-dim-sum communal space for people who don’t look like you.

Chocolate City wants to remember one of their own — but there has been pushback from interlopers who want a voice in the naming of things. Because that’s the other side of Columbusing an area: it’s not just pillaging the land, it’s changing it entirely. In Washington, D.C., that’s playing out in the fight to rename Good Hope Road in honor of famed Mayor Marion Barry Jr.

It’s a new front in the war on race and public memory. A bizarre rhetorical battle is raging between Phil Mendelson, the Chair of the Council of the District of Columbia, who is white, and Councilmember Trayon White, who is Black and represents Ward 8, the Blackest ward in this gentrifying city.
