Onward to a New Year

And just like that, 2024 is upon us. That means it's time to prepare for a year full of challenges and opportunities for Adams Morgan and DC.

Soon enough, annual performance oversight hearings will begin for DC agencies. If there is a particular agency you want to praise or critique, let me know! And as always, be sure to share any neighborhood-specific issues you may have noticed in recent weeks. Your input is really helpful!

Let's review December 2023, glance toward January 2024, meet our organization + business in focus, and see this month's video briefing.
