    VOTE FOR MERIDIAN HILL! The brick of the wall on 16th needs loads of repair and has been in scaffolding for months and months with no sign of the project moving forward but this funding would fix that!

    The George Mason Memorial on the National Mall. It has a great fountain that isn’t operational because of budget cuts and sequestration.


  • Great idea. Vote for the National Cathedral!

    Meridian Hill all the way! So many great memories in that park. It’s probably used by more people on a daily basis than any of the other contenders.

      Meridian Hill is a truly communal space – open and inviting to residents and visitors across all demographics …

      And in desperate need of attention (landscaping, structural, etc.)

    Vote LAMB (Latin American Montessori Bilingual Public Charter School). The school celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and it is also the 101st anniversary of the historic building which housed the Military Road School, one of the first schools to opened after Congress authorized the education of free blacks. LAMB is continuing the tradition of academic excellence set by its predecessor.

    Come and visit the school on its Community Day on May 4th and vote every day until May 10!
