Well, this week has been a good week for moving forward. After nudging by phone last week, I received part of my FOIA request from DC government. They gave me the police materials, sort of. It appears that, although I foolishly thought that a request to DC government’s FOIA office would cover all agencies and they’d parcel them out, that is not the case. And, the police do not keep the records of their own citations. So I must make a FOIA request to the DMV’s FOIA unit. Wonder how long that will take? But I’ll be doing it today and keeping you updated.
Last night I went to a mayoral candidate meet-and-greet and ran into one of the group that’s working on the project to wean bicyclists off the sidewalks in pilot project. He too put a little pressure on at New Year’s and now it looks like DDOT has assigned someone to do its part.
We are both guessing, and actually hoping, that like crocuses, these pieces will be popping up early in spring.
So in the meantime–STAY ALERT and STAY SAFE.
