At-Large Councilmember Michael Brown is coming to Ward 4!

Monday January 24th is the ANC4B monthly meeting at 4th District MPD Community Room starting at 6:30. We need to pack this meeting! Why might you ask? Because Michael Brown seems to want to be a voice of reason about Wal-Mart on the council but won't go on record with an actual position.

Well we aren't going to let him just give some nice sound-bites. Let's make him actually state his position in front of the voters. With a running total of 617 (and growing!) Ward 4 residents opposed to this Wal-Mart development, we need to make sure that OUR voice is being heard by Councilmember Brown. Here is a list of questions that we should make sure get answered tomorrow night:
  1. Do you support community-led development?
  2. Will you support our community in asking Foulger-Pratt and Councilmember Bowser to consider other options?
  3. Will you support the Ward 4 community when we say we do not want Wal-Mart in our community?
  4. If you think Wal-Mart is just fine for our community, will you go on record saying you want to make Wal-Mart sign an enforceable Community Benefits Agreement?
Come to the meeting and listen to what Councilmember Brown has to say in response. Leave your own questions you want asked in the comments section.
