DC Democratic State Committee Statement on the Government Shutdown

(Washington, DC) – DC Democratic State Committee Chairman Charles Wilson released the following statement in reaction to Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez shutdown statement.

Statement from DC Democratic State Committee Chairman Charles Wilson:

“I strongly support the efforts of Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, Mayor Muriel Bowser, and our local elected officials to re-open the government. Instead of accepting a bipartisan deal to reopen the government, President Donald Trump continues to keep the government shutdown.

As we head into day 21 of this historic and uncalled for shutdown I am saddened to see so many of my fellow DC residents without full representation in Congress suffering because of the destructive Republican Party. Right here in the nation's capital, thousands of Americans will not receive a paycheck today due to the Republican Party's inability to put hardworking Americans first. Washingtonians from all eight wards want to work and they deserve the dignity to provide for their families.”


Women of Ward 6

The Ward 6 Democrats are kicking off Women of Ward 6, a non-partisan monthly recognition of Ward 6’s women. This effort, in partnership with the National Woman’s Party and the Hill Rag, will culminate in the 100th anniversary (in 2020) of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote. 

Residents of Ward 6 are invited to nominate Ward 6 women, current or historical, to recognize their important role in our lives. Our categories include, but aren’t limited to: arts, writing, medicine, labor, media, law, retail, food service, professional services, government, community service, military religion, education, athletics, women under age 21, lobbying, non-profit, and science. Each woman must have worked or lived in Ward 6.

Get Out The Vote 2018

The Ward 6 Democrats plan to organize volunteers to support Get Out The Vote (GOTV) efforts in key congressional races for the Tuesday, November 6 midterm elections.
 
We are focused on congressional races that meet these criteria:
  1. Statehood/DC Affairs: We will support Democratic candidates who have confirmed they support DC Statehood. We will work to defeat Republican candidates who support congressional interference in DC affairs. #HandsOffDC
  2. Proximity: We will work in districts geographically close to DC.
  3. Impact: We will work in districts that stand a good chance of being one of the 23 seats we need to flip the House this November. We want our contribution to impact the composition of the House of Representatives.
