School Facilities Plan Gets Airing

D.C. residents who want to learn more about the plan for renovating and rebuilding public schools can attend two meetings this week.

The first is 6 p.m. tonight at Francis-Stevens Education Education Campus, 2425 N Street N.W. The second will be 6 p.m. tomorrow at Fletcher-Johnson School, 4650 Benning Rd. S.E.

The "master facilities plan," as proposed earlier this month by Mayor Adrian M. Fenty, would bring extensive physical improvements to every classroom in the District by 2014.

The D.C. Council , which must approve the plan, is scheduled to hold a hearing Thursday at 11 a.m.

This is so typical-Fenty/Rhee in that they must not want the public to show up. This meeting wasn't announced until Friday afternoon! Kudos to you, Council, on sharing your schedule weeks in advance!

The mayor and rhee remind me of an old Sunshine Anderson song -- "Heard it all before, Baby this, Baby that, But your lies ain't working now ..." It doesn't matter what's presented to the public because they will do what they want to do in the long run anyway!!

Last night at the Ward 5 Democratic party straw poll, Democrat Kwame Brown received 41 votes,Independent Democrat, Mike Brown received 29 votes, Republican Carol Schwartz received 20 votes, Independent Dee Hunter received 10 votes and Independent Mark Long received 3 votes. The results are in and both Browns, Kwame and Mike are the winners! It appears we are headed for the "Brown Brothers" for our two at large seats.
Carol, take a hint from the voters in Ward 5. Your days are numbered. Thanks for your years of service to the District. But everything must change.
Congrats to the winners Kwame Brown and Mike Brown!
