Happy TGIF Everyone,
It appears that our voice is being heard around the city! Below I have posted a quote and email from CM Mendelson. Please continue to call and send emails to express your opinion about KingmanPark being redistricted back to Ward 6!
If you have time tomorrow, Ward 7 Democrats is have a meeting on Redistricting- Saturday, May 21, 2011@ 10am- Sargent Memorial Presbyterian Church(5109NHB Ave., NE).
Thanks for your time and support! Have a wonderful weekend!Lisa White ANC Commissioner SMD 7D01 (202) 706-4713
From Councilmember Phil Mendelson (at 1:04 on the MP3 recording) “I admit that Kingman Park has been disadvantaged by being in Ward 7.”
Email sent to Mr. Jerry from CM Mendelson:
I don’t understand why you state that Ward 7 residents are being ignored..
I am scheduled to speak at the Ward 7 Democrats meeting this Saturday, 10am,
at Sargent Memorial Presbyterian Church (5109 NHB Ave., NE).Further, there has been very, very little comment from Ward 7 (East of theRiver) residents about redistricting, while every meeting in Ward 6 has been
attended by 100-300 residents. Councilmembers are receiving hundreds –
literally hundreds – of emails from Ward 6 residents regarding
redistricting, while few, if any, from Ward 7 residents except Kingman Park.
