Thanks for Your Support

Your support
and endorsements are making this campaign a tremendous success.

Thanks to all who have hosted 'Meet & Greets,' organized fundraisers, contributed, and issued endorsements including:

Dan Gamber, Caroline Street Residents Association, who says “Ramon has strived to balance the interests of the business (particularly locally owned) AND residential communities. He does not oppose liquor licenses but does try to ensure that the result is not a night club that destroys our sleep (see history of Cada Vez and Club U). He does not oppose major construction projects like now proposed for the Hilton and the 14 & U corner, but works to ensure that they will be good neighbors. I fully support Ramon's reelection. Not only is his approach to development balanced, he knows a lot about working with DC departments and about the history of our area.”

Kay Eckles, long time resident of T Street, community activist and President of the Residential Action Coalition and recent recipient of a DC Council honor, endorsed me as one who has served as an “ally working for balanced growth, historic preservation, licensing, planning and zoning. These are the fundamentals that guarantee and sustain the quality of community life. Mr. Estrada offers us the gift of historical memory and years of community involvement.”

The Nolando Condominiums on T Street issued a notice of support for my Re-election Campaign.

Ellen Mercer, former director of the Dupont Circle Citizens Association
(DCCA) and resident of 16th Street, also expresses her support of our campaign by saying that “Mr. Estrada has served our neighborhood incredibly well. Anyone who is paying attention (to the issues) would vote for Mr. Estrada."

The Campaign would also like to thank local business owner Carlos Buruca, El Paraiso Restaurant on 14th Street, for serving as a gracious host of one of our fundraisers!
