“Dear PoPville,

I repeatedly receive (at my address via USPS) important documents for the same family. This isn’t the typical assortment of mail for people being lazy about their forwarding address. It includes drivers licenses and most recently, school lottery info for their children. (That free pre-K is pretty valuable.) Additionally, from what my neighbors tell me, no one by this name ever lived in this house. The first few times this happened I, in good faith, tried to reach out the mother who has a unique enough name that she is quite easy to find. She did not respond, and evidence suggests that she is not a current DC resident.

I would rather my tax dollars pay for the education of children who live in DC and whose parents pay taxes here. Is there a place to report false residency claims?”
