“D.C. government was proud to support public safety and cleanup efforts for the Stanley Cup championship parade, which were a tremendous success because of the fans, the players and the workers,” John Falcicchio, chief of staff to Mayor Muriel Bowser, told WTOP in an email.
“This past week has been a fantastic experience for the sports capital, and we look forward to doing it again next year. #Back2Back,” Falcicchio wrote.
At Tuesday’s rally, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser thanked everyone who helped make the parade a success, focusing on the police, fire and public works departments:
“I want to thank all of the people that not only have helped us have a wonderful parade — but remember when you filled the streets of Washington, D.C., when our team was 2,400 miles away — they kept us safe.”
