Thanks to Peter Rosenstein of the Washington Blade, for his kind words:
"Silverman has run before and then and now has shown she is well versed on the issues facing the District. She understands the District government having covered it as a reporter and delved into the details of the budget in her work for the D.C. Fiscal Policy Institute. She would also make a good addition to the Council."
Elissa has worked side-by-side with activists in the LGBT community, and looks forward to continuing that work on the Council!
