A recent article in The Baltimore Sun, “Baltimore ballot question financed by Sinclair Broadcast group chair slashing City Council size garners 25K+ signatures” (Jan. 18), reminds me of when I served as a member of the Council of the District of Columbia. During my tenure, I introduced legislation that would have actually expanded the size of the D.C. legislative body. I did this primarily because it was important for me to recognize that more direct representation for D.C. residents is an important way to ensure that every voter has a voice.
The larger the city council, the better the representation
