Got Something to Say? Tell a Councilmember Face-to-Face

Tired of all the muggings and stabbings happening on your street? Upset about that intersection near your apartment where you’ve almost been hit on your bike, twice? Want to weigh in for or against the proposed liquor moratorium? Or do you have something positive to report — a city service that was completed efficiently, maybe; or good feedback on the development coming to your neighborhood?

Now you can unload all the good and the bad with someone who could actually do something about it. This Thursday, two DC Councilmembers are having informal meet and greets or “office hours” in and around Borderstan: new Councilmember David Grosso (I-At Large) and longtime Councilmember (and likely mayoral candidate) Tommy Wells (D-Ward 6), who now has most of Shaw in his Ward.

These open meetings provide an intimate setting away from City Hall for you to ask your biggest questions and actually get answers. Did you come up with a plan to fix the Metro escalators? Have a brilliant idea for the public school on your block? Want to suggest a parking ticket amnesty day? Don’t keep those to yourself — share them!

Councilmember Tommy Wells (Ward 6)

  • Community Office Hours: Azi’s CafĂ© (1336 9th Street NW) on Thursday, March 28, 8 a.m to 9:30 a.m.

Councilmember David Grosso (At-Large)

  • Grosso Near You: Big Bear CafĂ© (1700 1st Street NW) on Thursday, March 28, 8 am to 9:30 am.

In between performances at Rorschach or Studio Theatre, you can often find her out for a stroll with her beloved dog Harper, chronicling the latest neighborhood happenings and the people and personalities behind them.
