After a series of interviews and extensive deliberation, the District of Columbia Association of REALTORS® Political Action Committee (PAC) is proud to strongly endorse four candidates for DC Council in the 2020 Primary election.
The candidates noted here are proven champions of homeownership opportunities for District residents.
- Brandon Todd, Ward 4
Brandon Todd has been a steadfast and pragmatic member of the Council for the past 5 years. The work he has done in the community both for his constituents and all city residents is deeply respected. DCAR believes that his efforts to increase opportunities for homeownership will help the District grow.
- Vincent Gray, Ward 7
For more than 15 years, Vincent Gray has been a public servant for the people of the District as chairman of the Council, as mayor, and most recently as a Council member for residents of Ward 7. He has championed a number of homeownership initiatives, including supporting DC’s First Time Homebuyer Tax Benefit.
- Trayon White, Ward 8
Trayon White is a steward for Ward 8 residents, ensuring they are well-represented on the Council. He has looked toward DCAR members numerous times on housing policies, as well as increasing homeownership opportunities in Ward 8.
- Robert White, At-Large Democratic
Robert White has been a great legislative partner during his time on the Council. Most recently, he introduced the Financial Literacy in Schools Amendment Act of 2019, which DCAR enthusiastically supported. His commitment to keeping an open line of communication with DCAR members is commendable.
Ward 2 update
DCAR conducted interviews in the Ward 2 race and, while we heard impressive plans from many candidates, we are not prepared to endorse a single candidate. We strongly advise DCAR members to review each candidate and their positions.
2020 primary election voting process
As with many activities this year, the 2020 election process will be different than in years past. While there will be in-person voting, the Board of Elections encourages all residents to request an absentee (mail-in) ballot.
