We have all read the recent story about the cell phone bills for the members of City Council and the fact that some are using their phones for an extended amount of minutes. Additionally while traveling, on vacation and even some while in Europe. Should we be paying for this luxury? My blog details some of the abuse that the city is experienceing.
What's in a name?

Here is a series of emails that have offered no follow up from Bowser's office on stop signs for Sherman Circle,
Dating back as far as June 6 2010, I engaged Muriel Bowser about pedestrian safety at Sherman Circle, NW. Not long after a child was struck in the cross walk on the circle, To date her office has not kept up, and not offered any positive response from DDOT. Even thought under the former administration they promised to correct the problem of how the signs read.
This is just the last detail of the many emails that went back and forth on the issue. Councilmember Bowser was involved personally.
You can read for yourself.
Your office NEEDS to stay on top on this and push DDOT for a plan now. Far too much time has already been wasted.
There seems to no follow up from anyone on this unless I find the time to do so.
Please assign someone in your office to keep on this. Your reasoning more than 2 months ago "that we don't go around putting up stop signs" no longer works.

Yes Commander and thanks for the follow up. MPD has always been the sole department that continues to follow up on this situation. As for our elected, and DDOT, well they are amiss with the proper mannerisms to do so.
Here's one for 4D and our officers, white shirts and you!!
I just hate to see some innocent young child hurt or killed by recklessness and a lack of a government that fails to move.
