    Nadeau?….Nadeau? Do you have the crime plan yet?

      Only if there is a tv camera and ribbon cutting. MIA otherwise. Oh and if you criticize her on twitter she insists you contact her office and then no response.

    I frequently drive down that block of Columbia Road, but the frequency of such events in the area has me thinking about altering my route.

    that part of SW needs a lot more lights (especially in the alleys) and a lot more foot patrols. In the 6 square block area between 2nd and S Cap and N to Q, there have been 4 murders, 14 non-homicide shootings, and 7 robberies with a gun. So on average, at least one gun crime a month in that tiny area.

    I voted for Nadeau against Graham bc I felt we needed change. Graham was a leader in positive change in Columbia Heights and his staff were Very responsive to constituent requests. When is Nadeau up for reelection? Do you think there is any chance Graham would want to have his council position back?

    By my watch we are stuck with Brianne Nadeau until the election on November 6, 2018.
    That being said, her inevitable replacement won’t take office until January 2019.
    So… We have a little over 27 months remaining with her at the throne.
    I haven’t been this excited for someone to leave office since GWB was in power.

    However, note that single action Nadeau conducts in office is in an effort to secure her reelection in 2018.
    As I’ve said before, she is surprisingly political and surprisingly dumb.

    This is what we deserve for electing someone who wasn’t much more than an office scheduler for a mediocre congressman.
