Last night at the Wilson Building, we had a meaningful hearing on
my legislation to make go-go the official music of the District of
Columbia. We heard from people representing all aspects of
the go-go community, from artists to academics. Go-go is
DC. Similar to jazz in New Orleans or country music in
Nashville, the District can support this unique musical genre by
increasing the existing economic opportunities while ensuring
our history and culture are preserved and advanced.
I am looking forward to working with those who testified and others
to advance this legislation. If you did not get a chance to
participate in the hearing, I invite you to submit your
testimony for the official record. You may do so by
emailing the Committee of the Whole at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the close of
business on November 13, 2019.
