The Honorable Anthony A. Williams
Mayor of the District of Columbia
1350 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20004

Dear Mayor Williams:

As you know, the Inaugural Breakfast, Inauguration and Council Swearing-in Ceremony, and the People’s Celebration have received rave reviews from the citizens of the District of Columbia, as well as the press. The 2003 Inaugural Committee, appointed by you, pledged to make your Inauguration a world-class event. The Committee is pleased to report that we deem our efforts a major success. The success, however, reflects not only the work of the Committee, but was clearly made possible by the staff support of your Executive Office.

During the first meeting, the Committee recognized that a budget of at least $200,000 would be necessary to put on the desired type of events. We raised over $200,000 in cash donations and approximately $70,000 of in-kind contributions. Given the amount of time afforded the Committee to meet this challenging goal, we are pleased to report that we not only met our goal in a timely fashion, but we exceeded all expectations. To date, all vendors participating in the Inaugural events have been accounted for an detailed documentation has been provided to your office. 

On a personal note, I was indeed grateful for the opportunity to serve your Administration and be a part of activities that so many citizens from across out City could enjoy for free. I know that the Committee joins me in this expression. We often reminded ourselves that the Committee’s work was to further your vision of ONE CITY/ONE FUTURE.

Again, on behalf of the 2003 Inaugural Advisory Committee, thank you for the opportunity to serve you and the citizens of the District of Columbia. If I can ever be of service to your Administration in the future, please do not hesitate to call upon me. 

Beverly Perry
