Dear PoPville – How Do We Get Swastika Graffiti Removed?

“Dear PoPville,

I walk to work down 14th street every day. There is a swastika drawn on an electrical meter box at the south end of Thomas Circle. I have called DC government and the relevant Councilman’s office and asked for assistance. Apparently, they don’t remove graffiti when its below 50 degrees. However, my first complaint about this situation was in November and while its been a cold winter, there have been plenty of days above 50. I guess my basic question is why is DC so broken that we have to live with swastikas for months at a time?

The picture attached is of the box with the graffiti but not of the swastika itself (I would not reproduce such a vile symbol).”
