Hollister cites Jordan’s “extensive career in public service,” “lifelong commitment to making progressive change,” and impressive campaign outreach efforts in announcing her support

WASHINGTON, DC – Jordan Grossman announced today that Rebecca Hollister, Chair of the Georgetown University College Democrats, has endorsed his campaign for the Ward 2 seat on the DC Council.

“Jordan’s extensive career in public service and lifelong commitment to making progressive change is exactly what we need more of on the DC Council,” Hollister said. “I’ve been so impressed by Jordan’s outreach to those of us here at Georgetown and his commitment to listening to the input of residents across Ward 2, especially students.”

“Rebecca is one of Ward 2’s most extraordinary young progressive leaders, chairing the Georgetown College Democrats, coordinating presidential forums on campus, and working on state and local campaigns since she was a teenager,” Jordan said. “I’m thrilled to have Rebecca’s support as we fight to make it easier for students and all Ward 2 residents to get around DC, afford a place to live, and pay off student loan debt.”

Rebecca Hollister is Chair of the Georgetown University College Democrats. She previously served as Director of Campaigning and Off-Campus Affairs of the Georgetown University College Democrats as well as Vice President of the District of Columbia College Democrats. Earlier this year, Hollister was honored as Leavenworth County, KS Young Democrat of the Year. She has also worked for the Democratic National Committee and the Kansas Democratic Party.

Jordan is running for the Ward 2 seat on the DC Council to end corruption, fight for DC statehood, and make it easier for residents to afford a home, find high-quality child care, walk, bike, or take public transit to work, and pay off student loan debt. He is a fifth generation DC resident and former Obama Administration, Capitol Hill, and DC government official. Jordan is challenging scandal-plagued incumbent Jack Evans in the Democratic primary in 2020.

In August, the first reports filed with the Office of Campaign Finance revealed that Jordan leads the Ward 2 field in the number of grassroots supporters and the total amount of grassroots contributions by a wide margin. In May, Jordan became the first candidate in DC history to receive the amount of small dollar contributions required to qualify for the District’s new voluntary Fair Elections public financing program – after just four days in the race.
