“Takoma Park is a terrific place to live and can be even better for ALL residents with strong, proactive leadership. As our City changes, we need to ensure a vibrant and inclusive community. To fulfill that vision, we need leaders who will listen, hear and act.” – Kate Stewart

As Mayor, Kate energetically works to preserve what is special about Takoma Park. She will continue to:

  • Ensure Takoma Park is a leader in progressive and sustainable government  — a model for how government and community can work together to bring about meaningful change and progress. As Mayor, Kate is dedicated to making City  government more accessible and efficient with greater opportunities for residents to engage, such as Friday morning coffees, lunches in the Langley Crossroads, and holding Council meetings at the NH Recreation Center.
  • Keep Takoma Park an inclusive and welcoming community. Diversity can just happen, but to be an inclusive community we need to plan for the future and we need the entire community in our minds when we make decisions from police policies to redevelopment at Takoma Junction. From working with Meaghan Murphy, co-owner of Capital City Cheesecake, and Captain Collington,  to start Unity in Community to championing the city’s Sanctuary City status to putting in place a racial equity framework, and much more Kate is dedicated to ensuring we are a diverse and inclusive City.
  • Engage with residents, state and county governments, and local businesses to promote affordable housing, sustainable environmental policies and economic development. Kate has led efforts to create an Affordable Housing Reserve and pilot a down payment assistance program – Home Stretch.  Kate has worked successfully with members of the County Council to get funding for a paramedic at the TkPk Fire Station and to secure money for a feasibility study on the campus of Washington Adventist Hospital to explore the possibility of an aquatics center once the Hospital moves.  Kate has worked to focus efforts on more efficient energy use for our multifamily buildings, as well as reaffirmed the City’s commit to the Paris Climate Agreement.

“Takoma Park is a diverse and inclusive community. As anger and hatred have become commonplace in our world, it is more important now than ever that we maintain what is special about our community and ensure we remain true to our values. We must proactively work to stay a welcoming City that upholds the right of all people to live their lives with dignity and respect.”  – Kate Stewart
