2023 Year in Review

It is an honor to serve my neighbors in Ward 3, and as I look back on my first year in office, I am proud of the work my team and I have accomplished. In 2023, my office: Helped nearly 1,300 residents with constituent services Attended an average of three community safety walks per month Held six Workdays in the Ward, where residents can visit with me, my team, and city agencies as we set up office at a neighborhood business for the day Attended more than 60 ANC meetings Introduced key legislation: Universal Out-of-School Time: to expand out-of-school time programs, such as after-school and summer programming, to universal access by 2035 for every student in a DC Public or Public Charter School. Out-of-school time programming improves academic performance and economic mobility. It is the most effective strategy for reducing juvenile crime, according to 69% of police chiefs surveyed nationally.

Secure DC Passes First of Two Votes before Council

Secure DC Passes First of Two Votes before Council

After hours of discussion today, the DC Council voted in the first of two readings to approve the Secure DC Omnibus, which covers a range of public safety initiatives. I thank Councilmember Brooke Pinto for her leadership and hard work in introducing this bill. It can be a challenge for everyone to work together, but that is the only way we’re going to solve this District-wide crisis, and today’s work and the effort that led up to it reflects that spirit. I’m confident the Council will continue to refine the bill between now and the second reading toward our shared goal of improving safety and accountability. This legislation is focused heavily on accountability and enforcement. While these are important, we cannot forget another, critical piece: hope and opportunity. We need a holistic approach with investments to ensure all of our residents have a realistic sense of hope in their future. That is a key way to prevent crime. It is that philosophy that inspired my introduction of the Universal Out of School Time Amendment Act,…

Statement on January 1 homicide at 4300 Military Road

Early this morning, a gathering among a group of friends at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Friendship Heights turned tragic when a member of the party shot and killed a young woman at the gathering. My heart goes out to her family and friends, who instead of celebrating the New Year are now mourning the loss of a loved one. My office was in communication with MPD shortly after the shooting and continues to receive updates. I have confidence that MPD is doing everything the department can to apprehend the shooter. We face an epidemic of gun violence in our city that impacts every resident regardless of age, income, or Ward, and we must work together across government to empower public safety agencies to stem the tide of violence. I will host a public safety forum on January 17 at 6 pm at the Cleveland Park Library with Police Chief Pamela A. Smith, U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves, and Attorney General Brian Schwalb.

MEDIA CONTACT: Christian Damiana 202.258.9532 | cdamiana@dccouncil.gov Councilmember Matt Frumin Introduces Bill to Establish Universal Out-of-School Time Frumin's legislation guarantees high-quality, affordable, and accessible out-of-school time programming.  Washington, DC –– Councilmember Matt Frumin introduced today the Universal Out of School Time Amendment Act of 2023. The bill would require the District of Columbia to expand out-of-school time programs, such as after school and summer programming, by at least 10% annually, toward the goal of universal access by 2035 for every student in a DC Public or Public Charter School. Programming would be free or affordable to families, with an emphasis on equitable access and geographic convenience. Youth who are at-risk, low-income, criminal justice-involved, or eligible for special education services receive priority. The legislation was developed with the support of the Out-of-School-Time Coalition and co-introduced by Councilmembers Charles Allen, Anita Bonds, Janeese Lewis George, Kenyan McDuffie, Brianne Nadeau, Zachary Parker, Brooke Pinto, Robert White, and Trayon White. Universal out-of-school time is an immediate, impactful investment our city must make for our youth. Out-of-school time programming increases school…

Seize the Moment and Purchase the Intelsat/Whittle Building
Statement
October 10, 2023
Seize the Moment and Purchase the Intelsat/Whittle Building

Councilmember Frumin’s commentary in the DC line, which proposes purchasing the former Intelsat site, is an indisputably ambitious idea. The site, located a block from a Metro stop at 4000 Connecticut Avenue NW, presents a unique opportunity for the city to acquire a massive property with a variety of potential civic uses. Purposes could include an early childhood education center, senior wellness programs, urban agriculture, a central food processing facility, and space for UDC or another university. To achieve this goal, the proposal suggests the possibility of relocating the high school on MacArthur Boulevard to the Intelsat site, offering a more accessible location proximate to public transportation. The District is about to move into the second phase of the MacArthur High School renovation in the Palisades neighborhood. The MacArthur launch has been an extraordinary success so far, but that very success highlights the challenges of accommodating a proposed program to serve 800 students at its current site. The school is in a difficult-to-reach location, tightly nestled in a residential community on the far western edge…

Washington, DC –– Councilmember Matt Frumin introduced yesterday the Addressing Legacies of Housing Segregation in Chevy Chase Amendment Act of 2023 along with a majority of his colleagues. The bill would void exclusive pre-1938 covenants that prohibit multi-family housing on lots originally subdivided by the Chevy Chase Land Company if multi-family housing could otherwise be built on those lots under modern planning and zoning laws. Frumin also introduced broader companion bills to similarly void exclusive covenants in the Rock Creek West planning area and to create a process to remove outdated and unenforceable demographic-based restrictive covenants from deeds. In response to our city’s housing shortage, the District set a lofty goal to build at least 12,000 new affordable residential units by 2025. Unfortunately, the Rock Creek West planning area is lagging severely behind its…

Late afternoon on Saturday, September 9, a shooting occurred outside at 4601 Connecticut Avenue NW. An adult male was shot in the abdomen. He was conscious and breathing at the scene and taken to the hospital for medical attention. The victim remains in intensive care, and my thoughts are with him and his family as he recovers. I know this act of violence was disturbing for neighbors and families. I was in communication with Metropolitan 2nd District Commander John Branch on Saturday regarding the shooting and will support MPD’s response efforts as it continues its investigation. MPD has not yet identified two suspects involved in the incident. Residents who may have information about the incident should contact MPD directly using the anonymous tip line at 202.727.9099. I am grateful for the Metropolitan Police Department’s timely and professional response to Saturday’s incident.

Councilmember Matt Frumin Introduces Bill to Address Acute Shortage of Nurses

MEDIA CONTACT: Christian Damiana 202.258.9532 | cdamiana@dccouncil.gov Councilmember Matt Frumin Introduces Bill to Address Acute Shortage of Nurses Frumin’s proposal would admit the District of Columbia to the Nurse Licensure Compact and allow licensed nurses from 41 states to practice in DC without obtaining an additional license. Washington, DC — Councilmember Matt Frumin introduced today the District of Columbia Nurse Licensure Compact Authorization Act of 2023, which would enter the District into the national Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC). The bill was co-introduced by Committee on Health Chair Christina Henderson, Committee on Hospital and Health Equity Chair Vince Gray, and Councilmembers Zachary Parker, Brooke Pinto, Robert White, and Kenyan McDuffie. Like much of the country, DC is facing an acute shortage of nurses. According to the District of Columbia Nurses Association, more than 95% of nurses in DC believe inadequate staffing was a “major issue” at their facility. This shortage jeopardizes patient care, puts a strain on health care providers, and overburdens nurses, leading to burnout and turnover, which in turn exacerbates the shortage of nurses.…

Councilmember Frumin Introduces The Rent Stabilization Protection Amendment Act Of 2023

MEDIA CONTACT: Christian Damiana 202.258.9532 | cdamiana@dccouncil.gov Councilmember Matt Frumin Introduces Bill to Protect Rent Stabilization, Address Chronic DCHA Landlord Overpayments Frumin’s proposal ensures rent stabilization can co-exist with the housing voucher program and strengthens both affordable housing tools. Washington, DC –– Councilmember Matt Frumin introduced the Rent Stabilization Protection Amendment Act of 2023.The bill ensures the voucher program can thrive without jeopardizing existing rent stabilization policies by ending the exemption of housing vouchers from rent stabilization laws. The legislation, crafted in consultation with the Office of the Tenant Advocate, preserves funds needed to supply more vouchers and house additional neighbors. The DC Housing Authority often pays the maximum allowable rent instead of negotiating a reasonable fair market price, leading to fewer individuals served and a dangerous upward pressure on the housing market that inflates rents. These issues are further exacerbated in rent-stabilized buildings because voucher recipients currently cannot benefit from rent-stabilization policies. As a result, landlords can reap 50 percent more profits by renting to voucher recipients. To address these disparities, the bill levels the playing field…

Statement on the Connecticut Avenue Multimodal Improvement Project

In response to dangerous road conditions, 24 ANC Commissioners, former Councilmember Cheh, Mayor Bowser, and DDOT all recognized the need for improvements on Connecticut Avenue. I share their desire for a safety-focused redesign of Connecticut Avenue and improved multimodal transportation options in Ward 3. I expect the final proposal for Connecticut Avenue will make the roadway safer for all users, including children, seniors, and people with disabilities; improve sustainable transportation options; and accommodate the needs of neighbors and our small business community The Big Picture The redesign will make Connecticut Avenue a safer, more sustainable corridor with improved access to local businesses. I continue to push for a consensus plan that prioritizes safety while preserving parking, pick up/drop off, and loading zones. What will Connecticut Avenue look like? DDOT is still in the design phase of the project, but the typical lane configuration is certain to include two vehicle travel lanes in both directions; space for pick up, drop off, and loading; and protected bicycle infrastructure. The redesign maintains the number of off-peak travel lanes…

Statement on Improving Public Safety in our Community

We can make our neighborhoods safer with a strategy that promotes an adequately resourced police department, comprehensive wraparound services, and community-centered professional policing. The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) should be adequately resourced to prevent and respond to crime effectively. While recent budgets included funds to increase MPD personnel, recruitment and retention of officers remain a struggle. I am reviewing existing incentive structures and exploring innovative ways to recruit qualified officers who reflect the communities they serve and the racial, economic, and gender diversity of our city. Training efforts should prioritize building meaningful connections between officers and communities that increase accountability and strengthen the department’s ability to work with residents and local leaders to prevent crime. In tandem with personnel investments, I support data-driven responses to crime that enable MPD to be nimble in allocating resources to address increases in violent and property crimes where they occur. Expanded use of proven tools like Crime Suppression Teams, which respond to incidents with additional police presence, allow MPD to address safety concerns. I expect the mayor’s proposed budget will…
