TENAC Pledges to Work with Newly Elected Mayor Bowser




November 14, 2014


Hon. Muriel Bowser

Council of the District of Columbia

1350 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW

Washington, D.C. 20004


Dear Councilmember Bowser:


Congratulations on your decisive victory as Mayor-elect for the District of Columbia. The size of your win clearly gives you a mandate to govern, and on behalf of tenants in the District, we wish you well in the years ahead.


It is no secret that you were not our candidate for mayor. Notwithstanding, we pledge our support to your administration, taking heart from your assurances to work with all sectors of the city. We hope that our legislative agenda will have your support, notably provisions to improve rent control, and measures to stem the sky-rocketing rents and other relentlessly upward economic indices, which threaten to make the District even more unaffordable than it already is.


We pledge to meet and work with you on these objectives affecting the huge rental housing population living in the District as well as other items on your agenda keyed to making the District an affordable, safe, and wonderful place to live.


Best wishes,




Jim McGrath
