jonetta rose barras: Big ambitions, big spending of AG Karl Racine

RIP TENAC CHAIR JIM McGRATH
It is with a heavy heart that I share the passing of long time tenant’s rights advocate Jim McGrath. Jim was not only one of the loudest voices advocating for Tenants in Washington DC, he was also a strong supporter of many other causes, including DC Statehood. Together Jim and I organized a few rallies denouncing then-candidate Trump’s hateful language towards immigrants. Not long ago, while peacefully exercising his 1st Amendment right to petition his government, he was assaulted by a Trump supporter. Jim always wanted to make sure every community was protected and informed, and would often translate all the literature he put out in Spanish, knowing that a large number of the people he wanted to help spoke limited English. I had the honor and privilege of collaborating with Jim, and had him on the April 2016 edition of the DC Statehood Today show: https://youtu.be/gYXO2qF4IbU (Jim starts at 9:20).

May he rest in peace, and my deepest condolences to his family, and his large extended family in DC and beyond.

We will miss Jim.
Franklin Garcia

DC Holiday Delays Tax Day | DCiReporter

This year, taxes will be due on April 18th, 2016, and not the usual April 15th. This is because the IRS recognizes any holiday observed in the District of Columbia as an official legal holiday nationwide. Lucky for tax collectors, DC only has one holiday.  That holiday that will give relief to tax p…

I fully support D.C. Statehood. Just no need to rename it! That would be a waste of tax dollars and time overhauling (USPS, street signs, etc).
