As hinted at during the ANC roundup, a deal for the city to purchase the Jelleff Branch property of the Boys and Girls Club (as well as two other club properties) has been reached. Fox 5 has the footage:Vodpod videos no longer available.
That protester is long time School Board member William Lockridge. According to the Post, the property he’s talking (well, shouting) about has already been sold to a charter school. Although GM agrees that a charter school doesn’t offer the same community benefits that a Boys and Girls Club (or a similarly operated recreational center) does.
