City Paper is not for tourists
At 6:30, the D.C. Council’s public works and environment committee will convene a public roundtable on Klingle Road, which the committee voted last week to close to traffic (against the will of its chair, Ward 1 Councilmember Jim Graham).
Forget to sign up to testify?
Don’t worry: If you’re reading this at any point before 2 a.m., you can probably make it down to the John A. Wilson Building in time to testify in the council chambers. When LL spied the latest witness list earlier this afternoon, about 80 folks had already signed up to speak.
And if you don’t want to go, rest assured that your viewpoint is likely to be adequately represented by the speakers who are present—-or perhaps one of the speakers who spoke at any one of dozens of other public forums over the past 19 years.
No, LL will not be going.
UPDATE, 6:48 P.M.: Make that 2:15 a.m.—-things are getting started 15 minutes late and Graham’s going to be talking for a while yet. (OK, so LL is watching, on Channel 13.)
