I support statehood for the District, and as your councilmember, I will work with statehood advocates on a strategy to make this a reality. The people of the District of Columbia deserve the same rights of citizenship as other Americans, plain and simple, and we can achieve that by becoming the 51st state.

I supported and voted in favor of the budget autonomy referendum. We, as residents of the District of Columbia, should be able to spend our own tax dollars without Congressional interference.
