Another Big Endorsement: Charles Allen

Earlier this afternoon, Charles Allen, the Democratic nominee for the Ward 6 council seat, endorsed me, and I'm excited to have his help.

I'm thrilled that Charles will be my council member, and that we can work together to bring social justice and fiscal responsibility to the Council.  

Here's what Charles had to say:

I've known Elissa for more than ten years. I've known her as a reporter, an advocate, and a watchdog for our city. In each of those roles, she's focused her career and her energy on having the city do what's right for the residents of the District of Columbia. I've been impressed with her steady focus on restoring integrity to leadership and have appreciated her deep knowledge of issues and priorities for our city. 

With your help, she can bring that commitment to the Council. I am proud to support her campaign and ask you to join me in supporting Elissa

I am proud to be endorsed by Charles because we share the same values -- integrity, accountability, and a tireless focus on making sure that we have high-performing schools across the city, housing that meets the needs of all ages and income levels, and other sound investments that create opportunity for all in our city.
