Next week is a great chance for you to make a difference twice in the same week!
Around a month ago, Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie submitted legislation to fund Rhode Island Ave NE’s “Great Street” program called the “Retail Incentive Amendment Act of 2012”. This is exactly the kind of funding that is needed to really get RIA NE going for revitalization. Without this funding, RIA is a “Great Street” in name only.
So, other than the election, how else can you make a difference, you ask?
Testify! The hearing for the “Retail Incentive Amendment Act of 2012” will take place on Thursday, Nov 8 at 11:00 AM at the Wilson Building, Room 120. The Friends of RIA (FoRIA) are offering to help any one with signing up to testify, provide talking points or help you write your own testimony, or help get your testimony submitted if you cannot make it that day. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP!
So, after you vote, go testify! Two wins in one week… you’ll be a Ward 5 Hero for sure!
