Endorsement AlertsMrs. Romaine B. Thomas

Mrs. Thomas’ endorsement means so much to me. She is beloved by so many in our community; after spending more than 50 years pouring into generations of DC children and being a big part of Ward 5’s history and development, she is a Ward 5 icon! What an honor!

Thank you, Mrs. Thomas.

Here’s her full statement: 

I am very pleased to endorse Faith Gibson Hubbard as the next Councilmember to represent Ward 5. I remember when Faith and her husband Drew moved into their home in our Woodridge neighborhood. I was one of many neighbors who went over to meet and welcome them to the community. They both got involved right away, with the Ward Five Council on Education and the Woodridge Civic Association, and both eventually earned leadership roles in those organizations.

I spent my entire career – almost all of my adult life – as an educator, invested in the development of our young people, and along with my family, have been an active part of our community’s growth and development over three generations.  Faith and I share a similar commitment to youth and community; we both know that the development of the two are interdependent. I was so surprised and humbled when Faith recommended to Rocketship Schools that they name their Northeast campus after me. She recognized and honored my 50+ year labor of love in a way that I would have never dreamed. Faith is a very special person who notices people who quietly and earnestly do the work, because she is one of those people herself.

As the wife of a former long-term Councilmember, I believe Faith Gibson Hubbard has the experience, the long-term commitment to our Ward, and the temperament to represent us well on the Council. And for good measure, I believe it’s time for Ward 5 to elect a woman to represent us. I ask that you support her campaign in all the ways you can, but most importantly, vote for her in the June 21st Democratic Primary election.
