Statement from Mayor Bowser on Amazon HQ2

Thursday, January 18, 2018

(Washington, DC) – Today, following Amazon’s release of the 20 finalist regions for Amazon HQ2, Mayor Bowser released the following statement:

“When asked what’s the best city for one of the fastest-growing companies, we answered: #ObviouslyDC. As Washington, DC continues to grow and we continue our focus on creating pathways to the middle class for more Washingtonians, it would be a win for our residents and the region to bring 50,000 high-paying jobs to our city. Making this list reaffirms what we already knew going into the bid process – Washington, DC is no longer a one-company government town, we are a leader in innovation and tech, brimming with top talent and endless opportunity.”
