WASHINGTON — In response to news from Adams Morgan Main Street that it would cancel this year’s Adams Morgan Day Celebration, Ward 1 Councilmember Brianne Nadeau released the following statement:

 “I am very disappointed in this news. Adams Morgan Day is a celebration of what makes the community so unique. I have been in contact with organizers about how I can support their efforts to deal with the issues at hand and build a stronger organization in the future. Unfortunately, as the news reports show, the problem is larger than just money. There are irregularities that must be investigated and questions that need to be answered in order to move forward. I look forward to a speedy investigation so that the organizers can move forward with planning an even stronger celebration next year.”
