In last week’s Loose Lips (3/31), Staff Writer James Jones incorrectly stated that when Ward 3 Councilmember Kathy Patterson was chair of the Committee on the Judiciary, she “allowed” Metropolitan Police Department Chief Charles Ramsey to get a raise but killed a bill to boost his pension. Patterson actually voted against boosting the chief’s salary, a matter that came before the Committee of the Whole, not the Judiciary Committee.

The same column also incorrectly identified the Apartment and Office Building Association of Metropolitan Washington as the Apartment Owners and Building Association.
