Save the West End Branch Public Library

Last Tuesday the DC Council enacted a resolution to SELL three pieces of public property — including the West End Branch Public Library — to developer Anthony Lanier of Eastbanc and others. In so doing, Council abused its power — designating an emergency without real cause — in order to avoid the requirement for public notice and citizen input.

 

Despite clear public dissent, Eastbanc continues to show the firehouse/library/affordable housing sandwich as an viable option for the West End neighborhood. By using a complicit City Council, Eastbanc is seeking a way for the District government to consolidate public services and turn public space into private profit. We must demand better.

 

Petition signatories demand the City Council retract the "emergency legislation" granting West End property rights to Eastbanc. We demand the City start this deal over using truly open public discourse and competitive-bidding so that all DC residents can feel secure in a government responsive to public needs and not the profit motives of wealthy private developers.

Jack Evans was asked how much money he took from Mr Lanier and other Eastbanc reps(the answer is:all he legally can in campaign contributions), and hemmed and hawed and said it didn't matter-and then whined about his integrity being questioned!

EastBanc, PN Hoffman and others are the people funding FRIENDS OF JOE STERNLIEB but maybe now people will start listening.

Hey, we don't see any more of Bfrank, Truthseeker and others as they were all part of the Friends of Joe Sternlieb if not him in an alias.

Since Bfrankdc has not established who he is and not even to Luke, he is all of the above.

 

 

Wrong on all counts.
