Game Changer: Brianne Nadeau

Brianne Nadeau


As a young woman leader, community activist, and woman of faith, Brianne would bring a much needed perspective to the DC City Council. Her defeat of a 16 year incumbent speaks to the district’s desire for bold, new leadership and the end of DC’s “Old Boys Club” style of politics.


City Council – District of Columbia Ward 1– Open Seat. Brianne soundly defeated Councilmember Jim Graham in the April 1st primary, who had served on the City Council for 16 years.


Brianne is actively involved as a Board Member for Jews United For Justice.

Brianne is a D.C. Democratic Party leader and former Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner (ANC).

During her tenure on ANC1B, Brianne built a reputation for supporting small businesses, fostering cooperation between residents and business owners, fighting for the abatement of abandoned properties, advocating for pedestrian safety, and making sure the concerns of the community were taken seriously by developers with projects in the ward.

In 2012, Brianne was elected vice chairperson of the Ward 1 Democrats and dedicated herself to expanding the base of registered Democrats in the ward to engage voters on local issues and advance the cause of full representation for the District.
