Congrats to both candidates! I hope this signals a new beginning for the District of Columbia and its residents. Gray and Brown are just what this city needs.

Unions are beneficial to the individuals that are members. They are drains on the pocketbooks of people that are not members as well as the effeciency of the organizations in which they reside.
