Dennis - I can't tell from the parentheticals in your last paragraph what
your point is. As you know, the KCA is not a property owner in the
geographic BID area, so it was not permitted by DC statute for anyone to ask
the KCA to participate as a voting member when the BID was created. This is
the case with all BIDs in the city. So the only option was non-voting. Are
you saying that the BID gave the KCA seat a non-voting seat without asking
first? If so, apparently you didn't object, as you only recently severed
the relationship after years of agreeing to it.

You can view the Board Order and learn what conditions and consequences will
apply to Club Timehri after the incident on March 10, 2012, when a patron
was stabbed 3 times and hospitalized after stepping on another patron's foot
inside the establishment.
This is the incident that led Kristen Barden, Executive Director of the
Adams Morgan Partnership BID to write a letter of support to the DC ABC
Board on AMPBID letterhead for the owner of Club Timehri, Jonathon Wells,
who is also a member of the AMPBID Board. That letter was withdrawn two days
later in an e-mail to ABRA Director Moosally, due to community pressure.
Copied on that e-mail were Constantine Stavropolous, owner of Tryst and the
Diner, Co-President of the AMPBID and Stephen Greenleigh, a landlord in
Adams Morgan, who is the other Co-President of the AMPBID.
This sort of irresponsible leadership is precisely why the Kalorama Citizens
Association, in November, 2011, approved a resolution severing our
relationship with the AMPBID, which was created (without anyone asking us if
we wished to participate, by the way) with a non-voting Board seat for KCA.
