Pol Light #160 occurred on May 21, 2018, when Muriel Bowser announced that she had adopted a baby. Muriel Bowser has served as the Mayor of the District of Columbia since 2015. From 2007 to 2015 she represented Ward 4 as their member on the Council of the District of Columbia.
It is with great joy and excitement that I share with you that late last year, I decided to begin the adoption journey. I was not sure how long it would take, and to my delight, it advanced much sooner than I expected. So today, I am proud to announce that I am a mom! pic.twitter.com/q9qoz587IL— Mayor Muriel Bowser (@MayorBowser) May 22, 2018
It was revealed on May 23, 2018, that the baby is a girl and her name will be Miranda Elizabeth Bowser. Muriel Bowser is the first single mother to serve as mayor of the District of Columbia (Washington Post, May 23, 2018, Peter Jamison and Fenit Nirappil).
Pol Light does not endorse political candidates. We present a brighter side to politics when they are found on either side of the aisle. We don't have to agree with all of a person's politics to recognize these bright moments.
