“Question for you election/legal experts out there: If I’m registered with a political party in DC, and go to vote in the June primary, but want to vote for a candidate for a local office (council member) who’s not on my ballot (due to belonging to another political party), does my write-in of that candidate still count? Or is that vote only counted on the ballots for that specific candidate’s party?”

“Long time lurker, first time poster. My landlord is in the process of selling my building and I am looking to see if anyone is interested in my TOPA rights. It is a three unit apartment building in a very great location on Capitol Hill near Results Gym. I am looking for someone who wants the current tenants to stay.

Please leave your email in the comments if you are interested to get more information.”

“I have a manhole in my front yard, and I am looking to plant a tree, but I have no idea how big the room under the manhole is or whether there are other pipes, etc. under my front yard. How would I go about finding out that information? Any help would be appreciated.”

“Walking through this neighborhood lately is a practice in dodging running rats. It’s like the Tori Amos video…

There are rats everywhere in neighborhoods by Georgia Avenue and New Hampshire and they’re frickin huge, larger than they’ve ever been since I’ve lived there in 8 years!

I suspect a lot of it has to do with us having only 2 trash pickup days per week and limited trash bins on public streets, especially by bus stops. It’s reached an epidemic level now, and they’re not afraid of humans at all. Dogs

I wonder if they’re mostly displaced residents from SoutWest with all the waterfront construction, but the city needs to do something fast about this, it’s embarrassing to invite friends over because they’re literally running everywhere even in the daytime. They’ve also been observed running into holes at the warehouse building next to sweet mango cafe by me on my way home from work, I can’t imagine what’s going on there, but it certainly doesn’t make me hungry.”

“At my apartment you need a 202 phone number for the callbox to work. I’m currently paying too much to RCN every month for this service, but I was wondering if anyone knew of any cheaper options like magicjack, a 202 burner phone or number forwarding, anything like that? I’m hoping to save money by going a different route, so any ideas are appreciated.”

“My small condo building is formulating rules and bylaws. Some of the owners want to require that we each tell each other about guests, visitors, etc and provide a list of people with keys to our respective units:

“The Association shall be notified of any person(s) intending to enter your unit with a key and without your presence …”

Is this ethical and legal?”

Law Firm / Lawyer Recommendation for Amending Condo Docs

“I’m seeking to make changes to my condo association documents. Specifically I’m looking to acquire the rights to build a deck on the roof. The roof is currently a general common element and I imagine that it would be changed to a limited common element. But I’m not a lawyer and am looking for an affordable attorney to facilitate the process. Assume there are no issues gaining votes of approval from the other condo members, so this should be fairly straightforward (famous last words…). Any recommendations? Thanks!”

Running coaches?

“I’m signed up for my second marathon (happy MCM lottery day!) and while I’m confident in my ability to set and follow a basic training schedule and to hopefully finish another race, I know I don’t have great running form and would love to meet with a coach a few times to get some pointers and drills/exercises I can use to improve. I’m telling myself that’s the reason I got slower, even for shorter races, when I started running longer distances.

Anybody have any suggestions or good experiences with coaching, ideally near NWDC or Capitol Hill?

I’ve done some research but a) so many options! halp and b) I feel like a lot of coaches are interested in getting you through an entire race, nutrition, cross training coaching etc., e.g. large fees that cover of those aspects of training but limited 1-on-1 focus on how I physically run. Have also been to PT but found that it was more injury/recovery focus than form correction. I know coaching can be expensive so would love any PoPville recommendations or suggestions on what to look for, especially for any coaches that won’t balk at runner’s asthma and walk-run wheezers who have no misgivings about their BQ potential.”

“I was wondering if anyone knew of any fun Easter-related events for adults – I’m referring more to drink/food specials or special events at breweries, concert venues, beer gardens, etc. than anything religious. Anyone doing anything festive and not kid-oriented? I want to avoid the cherry blossom traffic and crowds.”
