opposing progressive reforms and needs of DC workers and families.

LISA GORE for AT-LARGE COUNCIL
Endorsed by Greater Greater Washington

“Greater Greater Washington endorsed ANC 3/4G-01 Commissioner Lisa Gore, who offers the most on our core issues of housing, transportation, and land use, and demonstrates the greatest potential to improve on the performance of current at-large Councilmember Anita Bonds. Gore’s background as an investigator for the Office of the Inspector General within the US Department of Housing and Urban Development prepares her well for an oversight role on the DC Council...

“Councilmember Bonds has chaired the housing committee since 2015, coinciding with an acute acceleration of the housing crisis. Yet, Bonds’s legislative output has been light… Bonds’s seeming inability to differentiate between Local Rent Supplement Program vouchers and federal vouchers… and her outing of a whistleblower are recent, significant missteps. Further, her committee has functionally abdicated any attempt at meaningful oversight as scandals and mismanagement have plagued agencies that touch the District’s housing policy; behold, its FY23 budget report, particularly regarding the Department of Housing and Community Development, which makes extremely marginal, basic recommendations that the committee should have legislated years ago…”
