Grosso wins re-election, recommits to fighting for D.C. residents
Washington, D.C – Last night, At-Large Councilmember David Grosso was re-elected to a second four year term on the Council of the District of Columbia. The following is his statement:
“I am eternally grateful to the voters for returning me to office for another four year term last night. It is truly an honor to serve every resident of the District of Columbia on the Council.
“Now is the time to deepen our efforts to build a better city. My priority has always been to expand the human rights of all our residents. Everything we need to do – improving our schools, reforming our criminal justice system, providing more affordable housing, expanding economic opportunities – is rooted in a basic respect for the rights and dignity of each person.
“This will not be accomplished alone. It will be the charge of all our elected leaders and every resident. I have always believed that the greatest strength of this city is our people’s fierce embrace of its diversity. We must recommit to that strength today. We must fight for each other. We must work for the most vulnerable among us. We must lift each other up. We must love one another.
“Thank you again. I and my staff stand ready to serve you.”
