On Friday 9/21 DDOT creates a temporary bi-directional bike lane on the 400 block of Kenyon St, NW. The goal was to engage the neighbors and gather information on its impact on traffic as part of the larger crosstown multimodal transportation effort. I enjoyed talking to the DDOT team and hearing about the different perspectives that had already gathered.
Having a great conversation with my neighbor Jackie while out delivering my August/September newsletter.
Today I joined my brothers of Lincoln-Cushing Camp No. 2, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, in service. Together we participated in a headstone rededication ceremony for civil war veteran John Rea and his wife, Mary at Arlington National Cemetery. John’s name had been misspelled on the original stone and until now his wife has been in an unmarked grave. This is no longer the case. It was a beautiful day and many members of the family were present to participate in the day.
Had a good morning walking around the neighborhood with Commissioner Christine Miller checking out some of our public spaces that are under performing. Looking forward to coming up with a plan to improve them. It was also great bumping in to @vawsesq and William Jordan.
Had a great time catching up with friends at the 3rd District MPD National Night Out event at the Bruce Monroe park. The rain didn’t keep people away and the food was also good.
Great night with @wardonedems, who brought Ward 1 ANC Commissioners together to share advice and experiences of being a Commissioner with those running to be on an ANC for the first time.
Signed, sealed, and delivered — my petitions are in to be on the November ballot to continue representing the community on ANC1A.
It’s a wonderful afternoon to kick back with neighbors at the Park Morton SOCA fest.
Enjoyed a beautiful summer day at the anniversary of the Battle of Fort Stevens today with my brothers of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War.
