“All praises be to Allah for blessing DC Mayor Vincent Gray for appointing me to this vital Mayoral Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee. I also would like to thank my good friend and Ward 2 Councilman Jack Evans for nominating me to this Mayoral appointment. My past minor offenses in the adult judicial system will be an asset to advise Mayor Gray on federal grant monies for juvenile justice programs on this advisory committee and to bring former or present adjudicated youth on board to advise the Mayor’s Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee on issues to reduce the juvenile truancy and crime rate in DC,” said Mayoral Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee Al Hajj Mahdi Leroy J. Thorpe, Jr.
DC Fire Chief Kenneth Ellerbe armed with a platoon of firemen and a fire truck including his executive team provided free blood pressure screening and data on free fire alarms for residents homes in Shaw. Chief Ellerbe provided a host of data on free CPR classes to be provided to the community and job openings for 30 new firemen recruits for this coming October. The standing room only and diverse crowd attending the ECCA meeting at the Third Baptist Church gave Chief Ellerbe an electrifying applause. Chief Ellerbe used to live in the Shaw community and the cousin of ECCA member Teddi Campbell.
