Introducing….The District’s Dime

We have a winner!

From now on you can say you read about progressive revenue ideas or expensive economic development tax giveaways or really cool budget stuff at “The District’s Dime,” the new name for DCFPI’s blog!

The winner of the DCFPI mug and homemade lunch is….drumroll, please…..Bryan Martin Firvida! We also decided that another of Bryan’s submissions, “Beyond the Budget Book,” is perfect as a “tagline” for our blog. So many kudos Bryan, and please send us an email to coordinate lunch!

Thanks very much to all who submitted. We had many great names to choose from, and we even pulled in a new media pro or two to help us decide.

Coming up next in “The District’s Dime”: Ed Lazere on new research showing that it isn’t the wealthiest who bear the biggest local tax burden but DC’s middle class.
