The Council’s last legislative meeting before the summer is quickly approaching!
In case you missed our last legislative discussion, I’ll highlight some decisions to look out for at the final legislative meeting on July 12th. But first, I wanted to share some exciting office news that happened this month!
As some may have heard, the Silverman office now has two new baby additions. Congratulations to Ari Weisbard and his wife, Rebecca, who welcomed baby Misha home, alongside Kitty Richards and her husband, Don, who welcomed baby Liam home. The latest from both camps is that everyone “is healthy and happy to have access to paid leave, like all should.”
If that wasn’t exciting enough, we also welcomed two new staff additions this week! I’m delighted to introduce Michele Blackwell as our new Chief of Staff and Ameir Jeffries as our Marion S. Barry Summer Youth Employment Program (MBSYEP) intern. They look forward to meeting you around the Wilson Building or at an upcoming community event. There’s more below on community activities (read: July 4th parades), so keep reading!Read more
