On July 6, the city broke ground on the first of seven small family shelters being built to replace the converted hospital, D.C. General, where too many District families reside. A star of appreciation goes to my Ward 4 representative, Brandon Todd, for backing, assisting and making housing available to D.C. residents. We need a lot more, and do appreciate actions over words!
