Councilman Frank Smith, Jr. (left) and ANC Commissioner Lawrence T. Guyot, Jr. enjoy a laugh with Donna Morris, purchaser of the Houseraising house, at the closing ceremony of the Manna Houseraising ’97.

“I believe that my first job as Councilmember, is to serve the people of our communities. In my terms on the council, almost 10,000 individual people have sought my help — people who need a place to live, health care for an elderly parent, assistance with a talented child. Many people know me for my Chairmanship of the Finance and Revenue Committee and my work on budget and tax reform. But my greatest sense of accomplishment and service is that which directly touches people here in our neighborhoods.” — Councilman Frank Smith
