Mayor’s Budget Announcement

March 21, 2018

Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians,

Today, I presented “A Fair Shot,” the proposed District of Columbia Fiscal Year 2019 (FY2019) Budget and Financial Plan, to the Council of the District of Columbia.

Washington, DC is a growing city. Recently, we celebrated the fact that we are now 700,000 residents strong. The District is growing because people are noticing the fantastic things happening in our city, and they want to be part of it. And people are excited to live and work in Washington, DC because we are a city that has something for everyone – from arts and entertainment to tech and innovation, we are showing the world that Washington, DC is no longer a one-business government town. We are a city of opportunity.

But we have more work to do to ensure that all Washingtonians benefit from from this growth and prosperity. This budget, the District’s twenty-third consecutive balanced budget, gives more Washingtonians a fair shot.
