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.

Yet another homicide in the 4th Distirct
Around 1:30am, units received a call for a shooting in the 300 blk of Delafield Pl. NW. Upon arrival, an adult male was located suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. The male was transported to an area hospital and later pronounced dead. This case is being investigated by members of the Homicide Branch. Anyone with information is asked to call 1-888-919-CRIM(E).
Amazing at 8:25 AM the morning after another homicide in the Ward 4 and there is not a word from our elected. Homicides are or must be a way of life acceptable in the minds of those we currently have elected to represent us.
As a community we must press for higher standards and elect those that care enough to be involved, aware, and present when these horrific crimes occur.
There must be outreach to the families, and the neighborhoods. We must be represented.
