Which at-large candidate agrees with you on DC's growth?
It's Tuesday, and that means another Let's Choose DC question is ready for you to vote on! This week, Let's Choose DC (a partnership of Greater Greater Washington, DCist, and PoPville) asked the candidates their views on the District's growth:
Mayor Gray has set a goal of growing by 250,000 residents in 20 years. Previous mayors had similar goals. GMU studies suggest we need over 122,000 new housing units (each of which might hold multiple people) by 2030. How can and should the District accommodate this growth?
Paul Zukerberg, Matthew Frumin, Elissa Silverman, and John Settles provided responses, and Perry Redd this morning promised to get one to us tonight. We did not receive responses from Anita Bonds, Michael Brown, or Patrick Mara. All of the other candidates have withdrawn from the race or did not file their petitions with the requisite number of signatures.
