PETITION FOR RECALL OF: PAID FOR BY: Recall the Mayor Anthony Williams
115 Upsal Street. SE
Washington, DC 20032

Anthony A. Williams, Mayor

Proposer(s) of Recall: Cardell Shelton, 115 Upsal Street, SE, Washington, DC 20032

We, the undersigned, being qualified registered voters in the District of Columbia, request that the District of Columbia Board of Elections and Ethics hold a recall election, as prescribed in Charter Amendment No. 2, to Title IV of the District of Columbia Self-Government and Governmental Reorganization Act (D.C. Code §1 -291 to 1-295).

Anthony Williams, Mayor

He has failed the city, with blatant cowardice, incompetence, and disrespect to the citizens. Made promises to the citizens, which he has not kept. Deprived the residents of voting rights to elect school board representatives. Promised better education, schools, vocational, technical. training centers; he lied.

He has. let unions. big businesses and banks control our city.

Continues to let a church occupy the old Congress Heights School that's needed by the community, for $100.00 a month at 107,000 square feet.

Has on deposit, $3 billion tax dollars, in the racist 1st Union Bank; use small local banks.

There is:

  • Lack of employment for unskilled blacks in the building trades.
  • No training for the 35,000 inmates.
  • No local residents in administrative positions.
  • No economic development in our black communities.
  • Continued funding to corrupt community development corporations that exploit, misuse, and mismanage tax dollars.
  • Continued support for corruption, while neglecting social problems.
  • No help for the homeless.
  • No affordable housing being built for low income families.
  • No black contractor with Public Works, Public Schools and Housing contracts.
  • No black merchant or vendor working downtown.

ANSWER BY: The Hon. Anthony A. Williams, Mayor

In 1998 I was recruited by concerned D.C. residents to run for the office of Mayor. In my 21 months of service, I have committed this government's resources to listening to citizens' concerns and to responding with quality, timely, and efficient services.

For the coming school year, we provided $129 million in new funding for D.C. Public and Charter Schools. We have also committed to begin construction on 1,000 new housing units and rehabilitate 1,000 existing units by December, 2000. More new housing is being developed in Ward 8 than in the other seven wards combined.

Currently unemployment among African Americans and other groups in the District is at its lowest level in a decade, and in the first year of my administration we more than doubled contracting to-local, small, and disadvantaged businesses. Finally, we will soon move at leapt two government centers (DMV and DOES) into economically depressed communities to provide new jobs and better access to services.

The performance of this administration speaks for itself, and I will continue working for the betterment of all neighborhoods. Only through our continued work together, however, can we guide the District to achieve its full potential.
