Economic Development in Ward 7

Ms V is trying to cut back on the snark in 2012.  Today's little announcement almost threw that resolution out the window.  Ms. V is concerned about all things Ward 7 and DC, but there are three issues that strike a certain fire in my belly: Transportation, Economic Development, and Small Business. Usually hearings, meetings, roundtables within those three areas don't get past me.  I was a little surprised that an announcement came out on Monday for a hearing on economic development in Ward 7 scheduled for Wednesday.

So that's the end of my snark. *Gasp*  I know you expected more and believe me I have more to say.  Ms V version 2011 would have continued with at least two more paragraphs documenting the lack of adequate notice of the meeting by using newsletters, the ward 7 listservs, and tweets as exhibits.  For better or for worse, your little Ms V is growing up.  I'm just going to leave it at sharing the announcement with you.
