D.C. Meet and Greet Damian Kidd for Congress

I am Damian Kidd and I am running against Jason Chafffetz to represent Utah’s third congressional district. I will be available to meet with D.C. residents for a meet and greet/town hall event on Friday evening(3/17) from 5-8pm at the Key Bridge Marriott, 1401 Lee Highway, Arlington, VA Virginia

Mr. Chaffetz is losing credibility and support at home and in Washington, D.C. He has ignored the principles of limiting federal government in local affairs and local self-determination. We embrace these principles here in Utah.

When in Congress I pledge to never meddle in DC affairs and to be vocal against any congressman/woman who does.

The Juris Prudence Academy is a one of a kind legal educational program for kids ages 8-12 hosted in Washington, D.C. The Academy is held on a college campus and will allow your child to learn in a real college classroom! The 90 minute workshop will teach academy students basic legal principles in a collaborative setting. Tickets can be purchased at

Tenant signed contract but not moving in

Dear Popville,

I’m a first time landlord and a tenant has recently signed a lease for my house and made a security deposit (which I deposited in my bank account and cleared). However, she has gone MIA ever since and she never moved in. I have called, texted, e-mail and left her several voice message but she doesn’t respond.

What do I do in this situation? Given this type of behavior, I don’t think she would even be suitable to be a tenant. Under the contract, I included the Waiver of notice to quit in the event of non-payment of rent. What do I have to do to void the contract in this case since I don’t even know how to get in contact with her?

found cat

An adult calico was found Friday night at 11 and Maryland Ave NE on March 10, around 9 PM. She appears in good condition but has no tags to contact an owner, if she has one. We took her inside because of the dip in temperatures and coming snowstorm; owner will need to provide an accurate description of the cat to claim.

Parking During Snow

First storm in DC… do I have to move my car if I street park? I read up on the site regarding Snow Emergency Routes, but there’s nothing on regular street parking and plowing. I’m in NW where there is usually Tuesday morning street cleaning.

Thanks for any advice!

Architect Recommendations for Plumbing/Electrical

I need to get all the the electrical and plumbing rerouted in my basement so that I can get several joists sistered. It’ll also help down the line if/when we finish the basement properly.

Any recommendations for architects would do something relatively small like this?

Buying without permits

We are under contract with a house in the city and have discovered that permits were applied for but never issued. Our seller is contractually obligated to get the permits, but we think it might be easier to get additional seller credits, a more robust warranty, etc.

My question is this: Does anyone have experience owning an unpermitted home?

Movers for a very small job (get couch from storage)

Can someone recommend movers for a very small (1-2 hour) job? We have a couch in storage that we want moved to our house. We want it placed upstairs, and it’s a tricky space that I expect will be difficult. Because of that, I’d prefer to use movers that are licensed and insured (as opposed to Task Rabbit, etc.) Thanks for any ideas!

Spitter in Adams Morgan

There’s a whiteish skinned man with freckles on 18thstreet near California almost every day that I walk by to work around 10am. He loiters in that area wearing a white cap (looks religious), big black coat and backpack, carrying a large trashbag in each hand.

He tries to spit on me, at least in my direction, every time I walk by. When I try to cross the steet before reaching him, if he spots me, he actually will pursue and cross the street as well.

I really don’t know what to do. Is spitting harassment and worth calling cops? I noticed he doesn’t spit on men, and I have never seen other women around to know if he spits on other women or not. I’m female in my early thirties. What can I do?

Pleasant Plains Neighborhood – 11th and Girard


I’m considering a move to the neighborhood but wanted to get some opinions as to the safety level of the area. Does the area seem to be trending in the right direction? Any help or insights would be appreciated. Thanks!
