This afternoon, the Subcommittee on Redistricting released an updated redistricting plan with significant changes. Most of Hill East and Rosedale will stay in Ward 6, along with Congressional Cemetery and all of the 1800 block of Potomac Ave SE. Unfortunately, Reservation 13 & the DC Jail will go to Ward 7. The DC Council is set to vote on the new plan tomorrow (Tues., June 1) at 1:00 pm.
Many thanks to everyone for the calls, e-mails, community meetings, rallies, etc. A special thanks to my 6B colleagues, Commissioners Francis Campbell and Jared Critchfield, for putting so much time and effort into keeping our neighborhood together. While I’m disappointed that Reservation 13 is moving to Ward 7, I’m extremely pleased that our immediate neighborhood (and our collective voice) will remain united in Ward 6!
Thanks again for your help and support!
