“While it’s true that the only constant in Washington is change, progress doesn’t have to come at the expense of experience. Save Rolando”

“Dear PoPville,

Recently it was announced that my work building, 1667 K Street, will be contracting with a new parking management company beginning September 1. While it’s true that the only constant in Washington is change, progress doesn’t have to come at the expense of experience.

Rolando, the senior member of the parking team has been working with the tenants of this building for 31 years. Solomon who closes our garage every night has been here for 15, and Molla, who greets us all every morning with a smile and takes time to get to know each of his customers has been working here for 10 years. These men and the rest of their team have more than 55 years of combined experience in the foundation for our building, and you can’t put a price on that. For many of us, they’re the first faces we see each morning and the last ones we see before heading home each night. They don’t just park our cars, they take care of them, and most importantly, take the time to get to know everyone that parks there.

This courteous, talented and dedicated parking team shouldn’t be cast aside simply because a name on the sign over the garage is changing. They are a part of the fabric of the downtown DC community. They may not be high powered lobbyists, but they are good people and deserve to have their jobs stood up for. Please help us keep them a part of the community!
