I'm Reta Jo Lewis. I'm running for mayor because I love this city - and I want it to be a city that works for everyone. To get there, though, we're going to need not just new leaders, but a new kind of leadership in our government: leadership that is honest, accountable, and inclusive.
I may be an outsider to city politics, but I've lived and worked in Washington for 35 years, serving at just about every level of government. In everything I've done - from working with Nelson Mandela as he toured our country upon his release from prison to serving in the Clinton and Obama administrations - I've put a priority on inclusion, on making sure every voice is heard.
That's what we need in Washington so that we can diversify our economy, end the cycle of corruption, strengthen our schools, and guarantee that every resident in every neighborhood can enjoy great health care, affordable housing, and safe streets.
I'll be an inclusive mayor - and I'm running an inclusive campaign. So now that you've stopped by my online headquarters, I'm inviting you to be part of our team. Don't forget to sign up for updates, and please follow me on Facebookand Twitter.
Together, we can build a city that works for everyone.
With best wishes,
