PAID FOR BY THE COMMITTEE TO ELECT ALEX PADRO, PLEASANT P. MANN, TREASURER
WHY IS ALEX RUNNING FOR DC COUNCIL, AT-LARGE?
People across the District have asked me, “How did you do that in Shaw?” (Read more about my Shaw accomplishments here). Over 20 years as an ANC Commissioner, I have been an agent of change, helping to achieve things that others have only talked about attempting. As an At-Large Councilmember, I would use my proven leadership and successes in protecting and expanding affordable housing, serving seniors, supporting small businesses, improving libraries, helping the arts flourish, and promoting equitable development and historic preservation to help rebuild the District as a city of healthy, clean, safe and prosperous neighborhoods.
I’ve led the effort to transform Shaw from a neighborhood primarily known for drugs, prostitution and gang violence to a world-renown dining and entertainment destination filled with public art and restored African American landmarks, adding thousands of new residents while maintaining the neighborhood’s economic and ethnic diversity. I want to help other District neighborhoods that are still waiting for brighter days to get the new development, businesses, and civic improvements that others already enjoy, without displacement. I’ve helped make it happen in Shaw, and I can help make positive change happen in all eight wards as an At-Large Councilmember.
My experience as an ANC Commissioner and economic revitalization professional would be invaluable on the DC Council as our city and its economy recover from the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and help make a more equitable, post-COVID-19 city a reality.
