Is PEPCO killing you??

Dramatic title.... I know. Now that I have your attention, you need to be at this meeting. PEPCO is responsible for cleaning up the environmental conditions at their site located next to the Minnesota Ave Metro Station. Ms V attended the first meeting. I was shocked at the number of long time Parkside and Kennilworth residents who have died of cancer. Apparently, no one has every done a study to look at the cancer rates of the community around the plant.

Come out to learn more.
