Video Endorsement: Christina Bacon & Anthony Davis, Ward 4 family and former DC General Residents

DC needs better job resources such as this facebook advertising agency , it needs people who have more knowledge about good jobs rather than a phone directory and a resume class, and they need counselors who stay with you and follow through the process with you, because when they give up, so do we.

Tommy has shown us that he knows how to listen and is willing to put himself on the line to get things done for the residents of DC, that’s why we support him as our next mayor. [MORE]

Endorsement: Julie Lawson, Takoma Resident and Environmental Activist

Tommy has innovative solutions. I met Tommy Wells on the banks of the Anacostia River when he was announcing his vision for a major step toward reducing trash pollution in our rivers and neighborhoods. Plastic bags were nearly HALF the trash visible in streams feeding the Anacostia River. While other cities were exploring bans and other programs to reduce pollution from plastic bags, he took a fresh look at the problem and proposed a fee on all disposable bags. [MORE]

Endorsement: Randall Keith Benjamin, II • National Transportation & Equity Advocate

I was born in Washington DC and when I was younger, my parents would pack my two younger brothers and me into the car to travel to my God-parents’ home in Takoma Park. For whatever reason, we would always drive up 14th Street, through Columbia Heights. For whatever reason, we never stopped in Columbia Heights. What I didn't know—then that I know all too well now—is that there were unforeseen dangers that we, as children, needed to be kept safe from. Now you can’t walk through that corridor without tripping over a running child. That same area is a thriving hub for business, housing, transit, education, grocery, art and physical activity.  It's what Tommy calls “five-minute living.”  [MORE]
