harry thomas will be at 1st and rhode island on tuesday

harry thomas is holding informal constituent meetings this summer, and will be here to talk to folks from bloomingdale this tuesday.

the program, called “councilmember on your corner” will take place from 5 pm to 7 pm at the corner of 1st and rhode island, nw.

five of these events are scheduled, and this is the only one in our part of the ward (others were/are in queens chapel, brookland, lamond riggs, and carver langston).

a quote from his office:
“While I have an open door policy and meet with all residents who come to my office, not everyone has the flexibility or time to make the trek downtown,” says Councilmember Thomas. “Councilmember on Your Corner provides residents with an opportunity to share their thoughts and concerns with me without having to leave their neighborhoods. Plus, I enjoy being out in the Ward,” notes Thomas.

I think this is great. I really wish he'd run against Fenty.

I happened by last night and the councilman greeted me before I even knew what was happening. I just wandered down to pick up some coffee for the the morning so I am not so grumpy. Anyway, nice guy, we chatted for a little while, but I didn't blast him with questions and issues because 1, I forgot about him being there, and 2, I feel like he's got bigger fish to fry than a couple trees that need watering. The Bloomingdale Civic Association was there too, a group that I will join if the 'hood becomes my permanent home. That would be nice, as its a lovely place. Both Thomas and the BCA were answering lots of questions and generally being friendly. I think the BCA meetings will bring more issues to the front.
