Why I Support Initiative 82

These values of honesty, decency, and a legislative process designed to make things better will improve the lives of DC’s working families — not just on this issue, but moving forward.

I believe the DC Council can operate better to make laws that serve residents and support workers. It’s why my DC Council Accountability Plan calls for mechanisms to strengthen the Council, like a comprehensive, nonpartisan, and objective research service to assist the Council in crafting legislative solutions to DC’s challenges, including robust consideration of best practices across jurisdictions. My plan also includes proposals that would prevent the Council Chair from using his power as a bargaining chip for votes — like he did to force the repeal of Initiative 77 — through a neutral Council Committee assignment process.
