Widespread Disappointment on the Parks Fiasco
The Post is running a story today about other District communities disappointed by the ongoing parks feud between the Council and the mayor. The disappointment appears to be widespread:
In interviews with advocates from Chevy Chase to Woodland Terrace to U Street, most activists said they oppose the delays. “They’ll be fighting, and our kids and residents are suffering,” [Football coach Steve] Zanders said.
And some are accusing the Council of feigning surprise:
Willie Ross, a Ward 7 Advisory Neighborhood Commission member, said the contracts must be investigated, but the council should have been more vigilant about its initial oversight. He said that some members attended groundbreakings with the mayor for projects that are now under scrutiny.
