Key Issues


Clement wants to call for a tax rebate for homeowners based on the significant increase in real estate tax which they experienced during the pandemic, as well as to promote local economic development through insisting that Arlington County complies with Executive Order 12072, which specifies that federal agencies use dedicated office space in Arlington and Washington D.C. [1].


Clement wants to restore a tax credit for renovating market rate affordable apartments, as well as limit the expansion of “Missing Middle” housing, or the replacement of single-family homes with duplexes and townhouses [1].


Clement wants to limit the further development of impervious surfaces through strict enforcement of the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act [1].
