I was not alone in my pleas at the November meeting, where I was joined by
Both of us spoke before N.C.P.C. Mr. Ford was polite enough to note to the N.C.P.C. that he was speaking for his neighborhood, and that they saw no need to bother the N.C.P.C. with a lengthy list of speakers.
But N.C.P.C. would certainly turn their backs upon Mr. Ford's neighborhood, especially N.C.P.C. member Richard L. Friedman (appointed by the preceding U.S. President Clinton whose term ended January 20, 2001), who was anxious to end our pleas. He seemed quite uninterested and unconcerned about our interests and concerns. He moved to end discussion and vote, which they did.
Like before none voted against the deck reduction; but unlike before we got one abstention, the D.C. delegate, Ellen McCarthy.
How about extending Washington, D.C.'s monumental core beauty to a portion of the Capital Beltway? Nah, just block off the southern waterfront instead.
That's some N.C.P.C..
