Karl A. Racine, DC Attorney General
"Zachary Parker is the only candidate in this race who is prepared, who is earnest, chock full of integrity and honor, and understands the most important issues that confront the District of Columbia."
Janeese Lewis George, Ward 4 Councilmember
Zachary is an independent thinker who will take oversight seriously, and make sure our agencies work well for Ward 5 residents. He's not a career politician or a Wilson Building insider. He's a passionate public servant who puts people first, and he has the record and policy expertise to back it up.
Charles Allen, Ward 6 Councilmember
"Having served on the Council for 8 years, I've seen what makes for a successful Councilmember: a clear vision and a commitment to accountability. Throughout his campaign, Zachary has laid out the boldest vision for how we can build healthy communities, expand affordable housing, improve district services though oversight, and provide every child a quality education."
Mark Jones, Business Owner and Former Ward 5 State Board of Education Representative
"There's a reason why Zachary has received more grassroots contributions and endorsements than every candidate in the race. His policy vision for our Ward is unparalleled, and his compassion for our most vulnerable neighbors separates him from those running."
Timothy Thomas, Ward 5 Democratic Committeeman, Queens Chapel Resident
"I've been impressed by Zachary's leadership on the State Board, his work within our community, and the vision he has laid out during his campaign. It's time for new leadership in Ward 5 and Zachary is the leader to take our community forward."
Deeohn Ferris, President, Institute for Sustainable Communities, Woodridge Resident
"Zachary knows that those who are closest to the problems hold the knowledge and expertise to lead the solutions. His servant-leadership is exactly what Ward 5 needs to thrive."
Ed Lazere, Ward 5 Community Leader, Brookland Resident
"Zachary is ready to take bold action to help neighbors who are struggling from the pandemic, rising rents, and an inequitable education system. He’ll fight against the powerful interests that defend the status quo."
