Ward 2 Town Hall Meeting

Dear Neighbors and ANC 2F Constituents:

This coming Monday, May 9, 2011, our Mayor is holding a town hall meeting to present and discuss his 2012 budget for the District.  Your Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2F is co-hosting this meeting and urges your attendance.  This will be an opportunity to show our concern over the budget and to give the Mayor our thoughts on it.

I believe it holds several serious defects:

1.      Our police chief, Cathy Lanier, whom we generally hold in high regard, has chosen to make cuts in prostitution enforcement throughout the City.  As you know, our area is a center for prostitution in D.C.  Far from being a victimless crime, prostitution plagues our community with its associated crime and health problems. MPD has already abolished the central prostitution unit, which had become increasingly effective.  Despite MPD assurances to the contrary,  enforcement efforts will decline, particularly  when we move into the prostitution spike which comes each summer.

2.      The education budget includes funds to reinstall most of the middle management personnel who in fact do very little in the school system. Education in our community is a number one priority; we want to see the money go for front line facilities, good teachers and refurbishing of the decaying structures of the schools in our area.

3.      The income tax increase is insupportable.  DC Residents already bear one of the highest tax burdens in the nation.  Increasing taxes in D.C. adds injury to the insult already visited on us by a Congress which will not even permit us to vote.

These problems need to be brought to the Mayor’s attention.  COME OUT AND MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD.
