Shadow Rep. Nate Bennett-Fleming believes he is ready to make the leap to the D.C. Council. He faces a crowded Democratic primary in the April 1 election for the at-large seat.
“We have the highest income inequality in the country,” Bennett-Fleming said. He wants others to spread the wealth, but he needs the tools and platform to do so. “I’ve been working with nothing for so long ... I can do a lot more with resources.”
