      Bachus is located around the corner from the DC Employment Agency and down the street from the DC Public Library. It is imperative that we take every opportunity to bring resources into our communities. This year I had the pleasure of participating in the DC Summit where programs such as this is exactly what the Mayor and DC residents felt were needed as we move forward in the 21st Century.

      Please don't take this opportunity away from us by adding further roadblocks to a population that is already at risk of devastating poverty. Help us Help ourselves.

      It is important to me because it convenient or me to get to instead of all the way uptown where there is nowhere to park so they should leave well enough alone.
