As a result, all of the students within Georgetown University are just as valid participants in the ANC2E political process as the neighbors living nearby. The 800+ signatures on the petition are representative of supporters within ANC2E and beyond– students or not, we’re all in the same political district and we all have a stake.

Nor is your point a good one, as Incorrect made clear.

GU dropped those projects from the actual plan filed in December. The plan’s opponents submitted the petition and signatures to the ANC, as if it were based upon the current plan, when in fact it described a plan that was never filed. The CAG and BCA web sites both still link to the petition, as if the 1789 block and smokestack are still issues. Rubino and company are being dishonest with their own neighbors and the city government by pretending that the signatures represent opposition to the existing plan and not admitting that their petition is no longer valid.

All these kids are ruining my HGTV lifestyle.

Big deal.

The long-term local residents have more at stake.

The DC Students Speak petition is not in fact flawed: Commissioner Jones may have attempted to imply such, but if you read over GoPetition’s policies you will see why so many signatures appear to be from Kansas. Individuals that have untraceable IPs and do not list their ZIP code are automatically placed as dots in the center of the originating country: for the US this happens to be Kansas.
