“Jordan Grossman is a fifth-generation area resident and first-time council candidate. His work history includes serving as Deputy Legislative Director for Sen. Amy Klobuchar, field organizer for the Obama campaign, and law clerk for the US District Court for the District of Columbia. Most recently he worked at the DC Department of Health Care Finance.

His volunteer roles include serving as Co-President of the American Constitution Society’s DC Chapter and as a member of the Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) committee that reviews liquor license applications for establishments in Shaw/Logan Circle. Grossman says his number one priority as potential Ward 2 Councilmember is ending corruption. He supports a current proposal to ban lawmakers from holding outside employment, but wants to go further and bar councilmembers from ever lobbying on behalf of for-profit entities after they leave office.

Other issues mentioned on his website include funding affordable housing programs such as the Local Rent Supplement Program and the Housing Production Trust Fund, universal childcare legislation (the Birth-to-Three for All DC Act), easing student loans, and prioritizing bike, transit, and pedestrian infrastructure. He strongly supports DC statehood.”
