ANN C. WILCOX is the DC Statehood Green Party candidate for the At-Large seat on the DC City Council in 2020. She is a lawyer and a former elected School Board member for Ward 2 (1994-98). In 1992 she was appointed to the DC Commission for Women, by former mayor Sharon Pratt Kelly, working on issues such as Kinship Care, domestic violence and others affecting women and families.
Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Ann came to DC in the early 1980's after college, and went to law school at American Univ (Washington College of Law). Her law practice focuses on legal services, including landlord & tenant. She joined the original DC Statehood Party in the 1980's,
working with leaders such as CM Hilda Mason and activist Josephine Butler. As a member of the combined Statehood-Green Party, she is a community activist on DC Statehood and other progressive issues. She currently lives in the Shepherd Park area of Ward 4.
As a Councilmember, Ann would prioritize needs of families, children, and workers. Priorities include increasing affordable housing and improving conditions in public housing. Safe, affordable transportation, access to health care throughout the city, and quality public education, are also key. During this difficult time of COVID, we must ensure that families, marginalized workers, seniors, and other vulnerable populations are supported.
