The Orange for Mayor Campaign invites you to get to know us and our 2014 Agenda for the District of Columbia at www.Orange4Mayor.com. We've dubbed our 2014 campaign song as "Happy" by Pharrell Williams as that is what we want for all DC residents and businesses. Our vision is and always has been a city that is prosperous for all as we championed for and succeeded in; raising the minimum wage for over 64k DC residents, ensuring paid sick leave for DC workers, and demanding social responsibility from big businesses coming into DC while still providing more opportunities for commerce. These and many other accomplishments on behalf DC residents and businesses exemplify leadership, compassion, and the ability to get things done. Get to know the real Vincent Orange for yourself, and join us in striving for a better DC that leaves no one behind and takes no one for granted. Follow us on twitter at @Orange4Mayor

Kenyan McDuffie is running for re-election for the Ward 5 seat on the DC Council. In the 2012 special election, Kenyan was proud to receive the endorsement of the Gertrude Stein Democratic Club. To date, Kenyan has received the endorsements of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) District Council 20, Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA) Local 657, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Maryland and D.C. State Council, DC Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW), District of Columbia Association of Realtors (DCAR), and DC 4 Democracy. Kenyan also scored the highest of all Ward 5 candidates on the Gay and Lesbian Activists Alliance (GLAA) questionnaire.
In the past 20 months, Kenyan McDuffie has established a record of legislative and budget accomplishments. Restoring our faith in leadership was one of his major priorities, which is why Kenyan introduced and successfully passed the most comprehensive campaign finance reform and ethics legislation in the District of Columbia's history. Kenyan identified funding for a state-of-the-art stand-alone middle school in Ward 5, which will open its doors in the Fall of 2015. Kenyan also provided grant funding for Ward 5 small businesses to spur economic development along our major commercial corridors, including Rhode Island Ave, North Capitol Street and Bladensburg Road. Ensuring that our seniors have improved access to social services and transportation, Kenyan also increased the District Office on Aging's funding at a 44% higher level than the previous year, And above all, Kenyan has fought for more funding for affordable housing, making sure that our most vulnerable population, our working class, and long-term residents are not priced out by the increasing cost of living here in the District of Columbia.
