Your good wishes mean so much to me

Dear Friends,

The FY 15 budget has now started--the busiest season of the year for the Council. And that deprives me of the time I would like to take to respond individually to the many post-election messages. I have read and appreciated every one of them.

Your heartfelt message was among them.

Performance Oversight Hearing with the Office of Disability Rights (ODR) and the Department of Disability Services (DDS)

Performance Oversight Hearings with the Office of Disability Rights (ODR) and the Department on Disability Services (DDS) was held today at the John A. Wilson Building. I was delighted to have members of the community attend the session, share their personal stories, and actively involved in the planning process to request funding for current and future programs.  March is recognized as Development Disability Awareness Month, and what a significant way to highlight and encourage members of the community and to further gain additional support for local programs.

Discussion on the Decriminalization of Marijuana in the District

I had the opportunity to share my opinion with Paula Alonzo, reporter with Telemundo, regarding the decriminalization of marijuana within the District of Columbia. In addition, The Washington Post covered a similar dialogue based on the D.C Council votes.
