Former Ward One Council Member Jim Graham’s breaks his self imposed silence on the LeDroit Park listserv:
“I have followed closely the actions and messages on the blizzard and its consequences by Mayor Bowser and Councilmember Nadeau. They are to be commended for all of what they are doing .
After 16 years of service as your councilmember, I intentionally stepped back these past 12 months. Some of you know I have other endeavors. I’m on the board of a homeless substance-abuse recovery program and I hope to be soon engaged with immigrant issues. Naturally I also plan to be engaged with the LGBT concerns. And I did start a successful adults-only business on Georgia Avenue.
It is all quite a change for me. Not having as much contact with Ward One friends has been the hardest part.
I now feel it is time for me to again engage , as a businessman and neighbor, with issues of concern to me in DC.
What I am about to say is obviously not for everyone~~~but i know there are many LGBTQ persons 21 and over who live in our area. Cabin fever is running very high. So I’m having a special NO admission charge on tomorrow Tuesday Jan 26 for those persons who may enjoy such entertainment. See www.rockharddc.com for details.
Stay warm~~and please help those who aren’t,
