The Honorable Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton will be the guest speaker at the next Penn Branch Citizens Civic Assocation (PBCCA) 7:00 pm Tuesday, November 10 PBCCA meeting at the Pennsylvania Avenue Baptist Church 3000 Pennsylvania Avenue SE.
A long-time civil rights activist, lawyer, professor and champion and representative for the citizens of the District of Columbia, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, now in her thirteenth term as the Congresswoman for the District of Columbia. Congresswoman Norton is the Ranking Member of the House Subcommittee on Highways and Transit. She serves on two committees: the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.
Among her accomplishments are senatorial courtesy to recommend federal judges, the U.S. Attorney, and other significant federal law enforcement positions for the District; up to $10,000 per year for all D.C. high school graduates to attend any public U.S. college or university and up to $2,500 per year to many private colleges and universities; a unique $5,000 D.C. homebuyer tax credit, which has sharply increased home ownership in the District and was a major factor in stabilizing the city’s population; and D.C. business tax incentives, including a significant wage credit for employing D.C. residents, which has maintained businesses and residents in the District.
We are very pleased to have Congresswoman Norton attend the November 10th PBCCA meeting.
