DC Mayor attended an Axios sponsored “What’s Next” summit to discuss the future of policymaking, business and politics.  According to Axios, Mayor Bowser denied ever supporting the “Defund the Police” movement in her city; however, the truth is the opposite.  The mayor even supported the movement as it was painted on the road outside her office:

(Via Axios) D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser on Tuesday said she “never supported defunding the police” and talked up her plan to hire up the city’s police force to 4,000 officers — with 30% made up of women cops by 2030.

What she’s saying: “We and many cities across the country are facing spikes in violence, and we’re throwing every resource that we have in curbing that violence,” Bowser said.

[…] D.C. hit 227 homicides last year, the fourth year of rising murders, sparking renewed debate over public safety in the nation’s capital.

  • Bowser’s new $19.5 billion budget proposal would hire more cops to reach a 4,000 officer force within nine years, starting with a net increase of roughly 40 officers next year. (read more)
