Bowser easily wins race for D.C. mayor

posted in Latest News by

D.C. Council member Muriel Bowser (D-Ward 4) won election as mayor Tuesday night by defeating fellow Council member David Catania (I-At-Large) by a margin of 54 to 35 percent, with former Council member Carol Schwartz (I) finishing a distant third with 7 percent of the vote…

In her victory speech before a packed house at the Howard Theater less than a mile from where Catania spoke, Bowser praised Catania for a hard-fought campaign and called on all city residents to join her in her quest to move the city forward.

“I’m humbled and I’m grateful standing here as the next mayor of my hometown,” Bowser told the cheering crowd. “I’m standing here like so many of you on the shoulders of all of those that sacrificed so that we may be here,” she said. “I stand on their shoulders and I take the great responsibility of doing my best every day and never letting them down.”
