The District’s budget has a $417 million surplus. If you were on the DC Council, what would you do with it?
Let’s Choose DC (a partnership of PoPville, Greater Greater Washington and DCist) asked the 8 candidates for the April 23 at-large special election. All replied except for Anita Bonds, and we have their responses online at LetsChooseDC.com.
But first, we’d like to know what you think. When you start voting on Let’s Choose DC, it will first ask you about a set of budget priorities, from the rainy-day fund to social services to tax cuts, which one or more candidates mentioned in their statements. After that, you can look at, and rate, individual candidate responses.
You can vote until midnight Monday, February 11. After that, we’ll do some analysis to try to not only figure out whose responses was most popular, but how people with different sets of budget priorities felt about the candidates.
Meanwhile, stay tuned for the results of last week’s question, on DC’s growth, coming later this week.
I hope you have a meaningful and reflective day today. We will back posting on our regular schedule Tuesday.
