Last month, D.C. residents elected MAPP’s own Elissa Silverman, a graduate student in the Urban Studies and Planning Program, to the At-Large Seat of the Washington, D.C. City Council. After narrowly losing a seat in her first council campaign in 2013, Elissa won her second election handily, capturing 12% of the vote in an unusually large pool of 15 candidates. Once more, she did so without any corporate campaign contributions, a feat not often seen in a city like Washington.
