McMillan Emergency! Please Contact Your ANC about a Vote Tonight to Approve the Mayor’s Plan!

Dear Residents of Single Member District 5E07,
We learned yesterday that a last-minute change to the ANC’s agenda for this evening has Comm’r Dianne Barnes of SMD 5E09 moving to get the ANC to vote in support of the current Vision McMillan Partners plan for the development of the McMillan Sand Filtration Site.  Because you are among over 275 residents of your single member district who have expressed opposition to that plan and a desire for a much more exciting, community-oriented plan, I am writing to ask you to contact your Commissioner, Wanda Foster, and ask her to vote AGAINST any motion in support of the VMP plan.
The vote is tonight so please contact Comm’r Foster today by either e-mail (wandabyrd50@gmail.com and anc5e07@anc.dc.gov) or phone (202-440-9253).  However you reach out to her, please let me know so that we can keep track of contacts with Comm’r Foster.  Also if you are a member of the Bloomingdale Civic Association, you may also contact Comm’r Teri Janine Quinn of SMD 5E06 who is also President of the BCA and who will be voting tonight, that you oppose this effort to gain support for the VMP plan and would appreciate her voting against any motion to support it.  Comm’r Quinn’s e-mail address is terijanine@gmail.com.  Just let her know that you are writing as a concerned citizen of Bloomingdale.  And if you are not a member of the BCA, please considering joining today so that you can vote in next month’s BCA elections of officers.  You must be a member by this week to be eligible to vote (Bylaws states that to vote in an election, a person must have been a member for at least 30 days before the date of elections, which this year is Oct. 21).
You can make a difference in the future of McMillan today with a single call or e-mail.  If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
Many thanks for your help and continued interest in this critically important neighborhood project.
John
