The ongoing indifference of our elected leaders

This is the second update to our previous post, "A Call to public officials." So far only ANC 2f Chairman Chales Reed has been kind enough to answer our questions about the church parking problem. Again, we continue to wait and are saddened at the indifference that many elected officials have over DC resident's concerns.

We decided to again use this picture of Williams, Cropp, and Evans because of the time the DC Council is taking today to debate baseball and not parking concerns in the District.

We again ask everyone to call these people and demand action! Here are phone numbers to call:

Mayor Anthony Williams (202) 727-2980 or (202) 727-1000
Deputy Mayor for Operations (202) 727-6053
Mayor's Press Secretary (202) 727-5011
Councilmember Jack Evans (202) 724-8058
Council Chair Linda Cropp (202) 842-2006
Councilmember Carol Schwartz (202) 724-8105
Councilmember David Catania (202) 724-7772
Councilmember Phil Mendelson (202) 724-8064
Councilmember Kwame R. Brown (202) 724-8174
Councilmember Adrian Fenty
(202) 727-8052 or (202) 667-2006

Not surprising that the baseball issue is getting all the attenion from the Council. Still, I would like to see Evans submit a resolution asking for enforcement in Logan.

I'd like to see Council address "the bigger picture." Illegal church parking isn't the only problem. Out-of-District commuters park in our RPP zones intended for residents of the District knowing that enforcement is lax and even a few tickets are cheaper than paying for monthly lot parking. And (I hate to pick on the disabled but since I am I can) ever notice downtown how many MD and VA cars with handicapped tags and placards park in metered spots all day and not just for the permitted "double-time"? Again, they know they won't be ticked because it's too hard for enforcement to monitor it and best of all it's free commuter parking. Lots of people are abusing parking laws and little is being done about it.

Very true 2nd Anon.

I think there needs to be more enforcement of out of state cars coming in and parking in residential zones. Also, the ticket price needs to go up as well. Maybe if the Council would raise the price for double parking from 50 to 100 and then enforce the laws that might change some parking habits.
