Carine's Bridal Making Masks

April 1, 2020

The team at Carine's Bridal Atelier is sewing and delivering face masks to help with the shortage during this pandemic.  They need your help and have set up a GoFundMe site.

 

If you can donate funds or fabric (at designated locations) they will be able to make more for our local hospitals.  Please join in the fight against COVID-19.

 

It’s not OK that our brave healthcare workers are putting themselves at risk while also facing a shortage of medical masks. While treating patients isn’t our skill, sewing certainly is,” says Carine Halabi Krawiec.

They are also asking for material donations to assist with making the masks. 

 

Materials include:

- vacuum cleaner bag 

- dish cloths

- cotton blend shirt  

- 100% cotton shirts  

- 3/8 elastic

Jack Evans Resigns From D.C. Council

January 8, 2020

The D.C. Council’s longest serving member, Jack Evans resigned from office on Tuesday. The Council was expected to vote to expel him on January 21, 2020 over revelations that he had taken official actions to help developers and businesses that paid his private consulting firm.

 

“After nearly 30 years of public service to the District of Columbia, I have advised the Board of Elections that I resign my position as Ward 2 Council member on the Council… as of the close of business on Friday, January 17, 2020,” he wrote in a letter to Chairman Phil Mendelson. “I believe Washington, D.C. to be the pride of the nation and I am proud of the contributions I have made in helping create a vibrant city.”

 

Evans’ three decade career included two unsuccessful runs for mayor, two terms as the chair of Metro’s board, and seven trips as a D.C. delegate to Democratic National Conventions. Over the years, he represented Georgetown at countless ground-breaking events around the city.

 

Once Evans formally leaves office, the Board of Elections will declare a vacancy and start the process of scheduling a special election to fill the seat.
