“The state of the District is strong, as DC resident employment and resident income as a whole continue to grow.  We go into 2022 primed to show that we are the District of Comebacks and ready to give more Washingtonians a fair shot. When our city prospers that means we have more resources to invest in the residents who need them most – more resources for our students, for housing, and for connecting Washingtonians to jobs and opportunity.  Even throughout all the ups and downs of this pandemic, we have remained focused on advancing DC values and moving our city forward.  In 2022, we keep pushing.”
