Marya Pickering is the Republican Candidate for the Washington, D.C. Council At-Large seat.
Who I Am
I am an immigrant/refugee and Mom. I am a long-time D.C. resident with extensive experience in Government and industry, including the startup of small companies and service in Government agencies and large companies. As an immigrant, I know that an education is everyone’s ticket out of poverty.
Why I Am Running
My campaign motto is, “No more business as usual.”
It is time to bring true diversity of ideas and prudent management to the D.C. Council. My experience in industry and government uniquely qualify me for the Council’s oversight role.
- As a mother, I believe that all D.C. children deserve a quality education. I support choice for parents, including vouchers and charter schools;
- As a homeowner, I support a strong and well-trained police force to keep our city safe;
- As a businesswoman and taxpayer, I support the improvement of our contracting process; and
- As a senior, I favor reduced taxes on pension income and support passage of the Pension Exclusion Restoration and Expansion Act, 23-0060.
Why Vote For Me?
As a former small business owner, contract management professional with an M.B.A. degree, and government employee, I am the best qualified candidate to effect positive change for all D.C. residents.
