Press Releases and Candidate Statements


DC for Democracy votes 76.9% to endorse Ed Lazere for Council Chair!

I’m thrilled to announce that we earned our very first endorsement last night, and it’s a big one!

DC for Democracy, a grassroots organization and progressive leader, voted overwhelmingly to
back my candidacy for Chair of the Council.

With more than 600 members, DC for Democracy works to organize, educate, advocate, and campaign so that ordinary people are empowered to take meaningful action to build a world where every person has a voice and plays an active part in making our community more inclusive, democratic, and just.

Since launching in 2004, DC4D has participated in nearly 100 distinct campaigns, ranging from fighting for a fair budget, $15 minimum wage, public financing of elections and helping to elect progressive champions to office.

It’s a tremendous honor to receive the endorsement from an organization whose values I share, and who I’ve been proud to stand side-by-side with over the years.

Momentum is on our side, from helping defeat the effort to repeal and replace paid family leave, to receiving such an important endorsement just a few weeks after launching our campaign!
