April 13: Mendelson Holding Town Hall Crime Mtg in Shaw
DC At-Large Councilmember Phil Mendelson is an important player when it comes to crime and public safety in D.C. The reason is simple: he is chair of the Council Committee on Public Safety & the Judiciary.
Mayor Fenty’s Omnibus Crime Bill has to make it out of his committee. Our own Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans is on this committee and supports the Omnibus Crime Bill (councilmember for Borderstan).
Mendelson’s office has announced that he will hold three community meetings to talk about crime-related concerns. The closest meeting, and the only one in Northwest, is at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, April 13 in Shaw at the Kennedy Recreation Center, 1401 7th Street NW.
Note: See earlier Borderstan postings on the Omnibus Crime Bill: “Gang Stats from Crime Bill Hearing”; “March 18: Public Hearing on DC Omnibus Crime Bill”; “Omnibus Crime Bill Roundtable Recap”; and “Friday, Dec. 5: D.C. Council Hearing on Mayor’s Crime Bill”.
