Housing protesters show up at Mayor Bowser's State of the District Address

On the 18th of March, DC's Mayor Muriel Bowser held her annual State of the District address. Outside, protesters demanded she spend money on public housing instead of corporate giveaways and halt "redevelopment" projects that displace low income residents and give public land to private developers.

Greg Casten is most famous for his attempts to turn Crummel School into townhouses for the rich, but that's not his only project. He is very close to Mayor Bowser, whose birthday party in 2018 was at one of Greg Casten's restaurants. That whole relationship between Greg Casten and DC Mayor Muriel Boser smells like so much rotting dead fish at the dock.
