Former at-large candidate Jon Gann today gave me his endorsement for the April 23 at-large council race. Gann, creator of the DC Film Alliance and DC Shorts Film Festival, has been an effective advocate of the arts and its role in DC’s culture and economy.
I am so honored to receive Jon’s endorsement. When Jon left the race, he said that he would carefully consider which candidate would move our city forward with a reform agenda. Jon and I share a view that our city can’t afford to elect a Councilmember who talks reform but has a track record of supporting the status quo. I look forward to working with Jon so that we can bring true progressive reform to the D.C. Council.
