Bowser reflected over the past year in a message to the city on the DCProud2019 site, where  she writes:

“Four years ago, we came together to give D.C. government a fresh start and more Washingtonians a fair shot.

Since then, we’ve accomplished a lot together. We’ve built a more transparent government that includes the voices of District residents. We made historic investments in education and affordable housing. And we went back to basics to ensure that D.C. government is working for D.C. residents.

Over these next four years, let’s think big.”

Earlier this week the Mayor’s office sent a communication detailing the last year in review, highlighting several accomplishments including:

Bowser has been Mayor since 2015 and previously served on the D.C. Council representing Ward 4. For more information on events and schedules go to www.DCProud2019.com or follow the Mayor at @MayorBowser.
