For All of
Dear Concerned Citizen,
As a Democratic candidate for mayor of Washington, DC, I am asking you to
write my name, Rev. Willie F. Wilson, on the voting ballot this September
10". Tomorrow's Washington must be created for all of its residents.
It must be forwardlooking, inclusive, responsive, respectful and
compassionate, as well as fiscally well managed. Your vote for me is an
assurance of leadership with vision and courage. I assure you a
revitalized government that responds to the concerns in the hearts and
minds of all of our city's citizens.
As your mayor you can count on me to
My work in this city has always been to support good government, equal
opportunity, and human rights. I firmly believe in democracy. To make this
city whole, I will be directly involved in building community and ending
the polarization that exists in our city.
- Make education my #1 budget priority
I will move with urgency in support of educational reforms such as
restoring vocational education. So that more people have the
opportunity to further their education, my goal is to provide full
funding for the University of the District of Columbia.
- Make our neighborhoods safe
I will tackle the issues of public safety by promoting greater
collaboration between community organizations, the faith community,
schools and the Metropolitan Police Department. I will increase
neighborhood policing in all communities.
- Develop the Housing Market
I will ensure that longtime low and moderate-income residents remain
in the city by increasing affordable housing opportunities and
restoring rent control. By restraining the escalating property taxes,
I will reduce the threat of foreclosure to many senior homeowners.
- Expand Business Opportunities
DC residents need jobs. I will work diligently and collaboratively
with the private sector to increase job opportunities and expand
business development. Minority business contract opportunities will
increase under my leadership.
- Care and provide for our children, youth and seniors
I will prioritize the well being of our seniors by increasing support
services for independent living. I will partner with the community to
ensure state-of-the-art recreation facilities in all neighborhoods.
Tell your family, friends, and neighbors - it's time to make a change
and we are the people who will do it. Together we will build a city that
is the crown jewel for our country and a city that works for all of its
