On Saturday, May 5th at 10am the Brookland Neighborhood Civic Association’s Statehood Committee will have its monthly meeting. The agenda will include an assessment of our lobby day on April 16th, planning for the Brookland Statehood Picnic on June 23rd, and other updates by committee members. To join the meeting please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
On Tuesday night, May 1, Neighbors United for DC Statehood presented at the Michigan Park Citizens Association on Statehood which generated a lively discussion on Statehood. Many of the questions focused on the financial state of the current District and how Statehood would affect those changes. We’ll be doing some follow-up research between now and then so that we can continue the conversation at the June meeting of the MPCA. Maybe, just maybe, the Michigan Parks Citizens Association will join with their neighbors in Brookland to take on the Statehood cause.
