During the Government of the District of Columbia’s financial troubles in 1991, Lightfoot proposed increasing the utility tax in order to honor the Council’s promise to give $36 million in raises to government employees. The Council unanimously passed the utility tax three months later. Lightfoot turned down two salary increases that members of the Council were given. Lightfoot was one of twelve council members who voted to end the employment of 2,000 mid-level managers because the government did not have the cash to pay them. When an arbitration panel decided that police officers must be given four-percent raises each year for three years, Lightfoot protested, saying the District did not have the cash. Lightfoot was also concerned that it would set precedent to also give raises to other governmental employees, which would require increases to income tax rates.

In May 1991, a police officer shot a Salvadoran man, Daniel Enrique Gomez, and arrested him on a charge of disorderly conduct. The shooting led to the looting, burning, and vandalizing of more than three dozen businesses in Mount Pleasant, Adams Morgan, and Columbia Heights. Lightfoot and Frank Smith introduced a bill to give tax breaks to businesses that had sustained damages.

Lightfoot was opposed to the additional time, saying it unnecessarily delayed the awarding of a cable franchise. The Commission released the request for proposal in July 1983. The Commission determined that there should be minimum offering of 60 channels for residents and 25 channels for businesses and governmental agencies. The winning franchiser should set aside several of the channels for municipal and community use, provide studios to the public to produce programming, provide grants to support public-benefit television programs, provide service to all eight wards, and complete all work within five years. The Washington Post named Lightfoot one of “Five to Watch in 1984”, calling him the “cable czar”.
