Subject: [WARD5] Fwd: MCMILLAN UPDATE: Actions Next Week!

Good residents interested in protecting DC's public property, here's an update on McMillan.
Paz,
Chris O.

TAKE 5 MINUTES TO SEND A NOTE TO COUNCILMEMBERS WE BELIEVE WILL SUPPORT OUR PARK >> http://www.savemcmillan.org/vote
Thank you for supporting McMillan Park.  We wanted to update you about a few events and ways to engage on saving McMillan Park.

First, today, Exorcise DC's devils from the McMillan Project >>

Second, a brief update on the Council hearing this past Monday >>
http://www.savemcmillan.org/hearing

We had about 40 people in attendance, with 20 people who testified against the demolition of McMillan, and in support of the DC's Auditor letter calling for a competitive rebid of the project >> http://www.savemcmillan.org/calendar#auditor

It would seem that despite our great turnout and despite the Auditor's letter, the Council Chairman, Phil Mendelson wasn't phased in his push to dispose of our land.  Although, McMillan is far from being a 'Done Deal' especially because they want to extend the disposition of our public land to 5-years out!

We want to write letters and gather at the Council to demand they listen to DC's Auditor and the people!

  1. if DC council members ignore the letter nailed to their doors from the Auditor about McMillan being sole sourced (especially if they tear it down!) would you print the list of them? thanks.
