He joins Rufus Faulk and Kim Janey in the race for the two-year seat. Several other people are also considering a run.
Decreasing the incidences of senseless murders and gun violence that have plagued The District; improving public education and funding the Boston Public Schools system better; increasing economic development and jobs creation for District residents; and working to prevent gentrification that displaces long-term residents and businesses.
