Brooke Pinto was sworn in as the Ward 2 Councilmember on June 27, 2020, becoming the youngest member elected to the Council of the District of Columbia in history, and the first woman elected to represent Ward 2. At her swearing-in ceremony, Councilmember Pinto pledged to uphold the values of integrity, transparency, accountability, and excellent customer service. She also affirmed her belief that “government not only can use its resources to improve lives, but it has the moral obligation to do so.”
Councilmember Pinto moved to DC to attend Georgetown Law School. She quickly fell in love with DC and became an active participant in the Ward 2 community and broader D.C., through her work with the Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless and Georgetown University Medical School, where she helped to address the intersectionality of health and legal issues.
Upon graduating law school, Councilmember Pinto served at the District of Columbia Office of the Attorney General, first as a tax attorney representing the D.C. Office of Tax and Revenue and later as the Assistant Attorney General for Policy and Legislative Affairs. She also advocated for D.C. Statehood before the National Attorneys General Association and on Capitol Hill.
A proud graduate of Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration, Councilmember Pinto brings a unique customer service approach to her role as Councilmember. She is the youngest of three siblings. Her sister, brother, and father are all Georgetown University alumni (classes of BA ‘11, BA ‘12, and BA ‘73, JD ‘76 respectively). She currently lives in the Logan Circle neighborhood.
