URGENT! FRIDAY DEADLINE! CONTACT THE MAYOR TO REAPPOINT PEOPLE'S COUNSEL SANDRA MATTAVOUS-FRYE, A TRUE CONSUMER ADVOCATE, NOT SOME UTILITY SHILL THE UTILITY COMPANIES WOULD PUSH!

Dear Tenants and Friends,

 
     Sandra Mattavous-Frye, head of the Office of People’s Counsel, is one of the best friends tenants have in this city.  She has fought high utility rates for all of us, achieved large reductions in costs from PEPCO, Washington Gas and Verizon, and holds their feet to the fire while they constantly attempt to obtain ever higher utility costs.  No one has done more to keep this city in general and rents in particular affordable, especially for low, fixed and middle income people. 
 
     Sandra is up for renewal in office and we urgently ask as many of you as possible to contact the mayor’s office by email or preferably by telephone and urge her reappointment as People’s Counsel, as soon as you can, since the deadline date is this Friday, August 28th.  Attached is a letter we have sent to the mayor containing points you may wish to refer to when contacting the mayor.  Mayor Bowser can be contacted by email at eom@dc.gov or better still, by telephone at (202) 727-2643.  You can also tweet her at @MayorBowser
 
Many thanks. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Jim McGrath
