March 2017 Newsletter

On March 1, I released my Transition Report to detail my legislative agenda. Days later, I began working to unravel the early childhood development crisis in the District. As a new father, I have been astounded by how much my infant daughter, Madison, learns each day. Watching her grow in her first months made me realize how vital the early months and years are for our children’s development, and that if we are going to cut away at the enormous academic achievement gap and meet parents’ need in the midst of a baby boom, we need to invest more in our children’s most critical learning years.
