On Tuesday, November 5, Councilmember Nadeau was joined by members of the Georgia Avenue, Howard University, and Ward 1 community to honor the career and lifetime achievements of Maybelle Taylor Bennett. The text of the ceremonial resolution is below.
It’s been a difficult year in the District of Columbia when it comes to violence in our communities. As of October 2019, homicides in the past year were up District-wide from 126 to 136 and in Ward 1 from 9 to 14. Thoughts and prayers are nice, but concrete action is what we all need. Creating a safer place for all of our residents requires coordinated efforts between the Council, the Mayor, and all of our agencies with a presence in the community. For my part, I want to keep you updated on what the Council is doing in response.
