WASHINGTON, DC., December 13, 2023 – “On behalf of all of our members, we join Mayor Bowser in our disappointment at the apparent decision by Monumental Sports to move two of the District’s most prominent major league sports franchises out of the District,” said Angela Franco, President and CEO, DC Chamber of Commerce.

“We know that should this go through it will greatly affect our downtown businesses. We remain committed to working with the Mayor, the DC Council, and its newly created task force focused on the revitalization of the Gallery Place-Chinatown neighborhood in addition to supporting the Mayor in all her downtown revitalization efforts.

I am hopeful for the future of DC. Ours is a great city worthy of collaborative efforts by public officials, business representatives, community activists and others to reshape our future. Working together, we will continue to strengthen this incredible city we love” continues Franco.
