In a recent article, The Washington City Paper characterized Lori Parker as a challenger who won't get bogged down by the D.C. establishment.
Jeffrey Anderson wrote, "Former D.C. Superior Court Magistrate Judge Lori Parker, a third-generation Washingtonian who has worked in multiple branches of D.C. government, says she will campaign by engaging residents and looking for solutions to systemic issues such as affordable housing, underperforming schools, and senior care. But she’ll do it, she says, without excessive reliance on the mother’s milk of politics."

On June 19th, Lori Parker announced her candidacy for D.C. Council representing Ward 1.
The Washington Post was on hand for the campaign launch. In her article about the event, reporter Rachel Chason said,
"Parker wants to encourage residents to become more politically engaged, and she said she aims to address systemic issues — including affordable housing and public education — to create long-term stability.
One of the top priorities throughout her career has been advocating for children’s issues, Parker said. In addition to serving in family court as a judge, she served under Williams in the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Children, Youth, Families and Elders."
