“Dear PoPville,

I was wondering if you’ve heard from others how they felt about the Zika threat to DC this spring and summer – I am newly pregnant, worried and sent the below messages to Bowser’s office – no response though as of yet. Maybe there are others in similar boats who could also request the DC government take mosquito control seriously this year?”

Dear Mayor Bowser,

Following up on my previous e-mail, I wanted to state that there is not only suspicion that the local Asian Tiger mosquitoes spread Zika, but there is already proof that they do: see here and here, for example.

Thus there is a huge urgency to act – please let me know what the concrete measures are that will be taken to avoid Zika transmission in DC.
