Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson 1st Term in Review
February 6, 2020
We exist during a critical time in the history of this city and country. I was voted into office in 2015 behind our beliefs and strategies to improve the quality of life for residents in the Eighth District. For decades, our people, neighborhoods, streets and businesses have seen systemic disinvestment and neglect. District Eight is home to hundreds of thousands of residents with diverse needs, however we are connected by shared opportunities and challenges. During my first term in office, I prioritized equitable and transparent service delivery, quality jobs, safe streets and sustainable solutions to homelessness. As we stand at the intersection of past and future, I am confident in the positive direction our communities are headed.
