WHY I'M RUNNING FOR MAYOR

I'm Reta Jo Lewis. I'm running for mayor because I love this city - and I want it to be a city that works for everyone. To get there, though, we're going to need not just new leaders, but a new kind of leadership in our government: leadership that is honest, accountable, and inclusive.

I may be an outsider to city politics, but I've lived and worked in Washington for 35 years, serving at just about every level of government. In everything I've done - from working with Nelson Mandela as he toured our country upon his release from prison to serving in the Clinton and Obama administrations - I've put a priority on inclusion, on making sure every voice is heard.

That's what we need in Washington so that we can diversify our economy, end the cycle of corruption, strengthen our schools, and guarantee that every resident in every neighborhood can enjoy great health care, affordable housing, and safe streets.

I'll be an inclusive mayor - and I'm running an inclusive campaign. So now that you've stopped by my online headquarters, I'm inviting you to be part of our team. Don't forget to sign up for updates, and please follow me on Facebookand Twitter.

Together, we can build a city that works for everyone.

With best wishes,

To some, moving from their small hometown into the busy, bustling city of Washington, D.C. may be overwhelming, but not for Reta Jo Lewis. The D.C. mayoral candidate came to the city from Georgia at the age of 22 to attend American University, and has been around ever since. Lewis was born in Statesboro, Georgia in 1953, and since making the move to the District some 30 years ago, Lewis has worked with numerous local and national government agencies. She has held titles and positions that run the gamut in both the private and public sectors.
