Tweet from Commissioner Adam Roberts (5D03), who replaced Commissioner Kathy Henderson (5D05) as Chair of ANC 5D in January
Henderson and Eddie Milton (Roberts' partner),
who regularly videotapes ANC 5D meetings and posts them on YouTube, then traded verbal barbs. According to Commissioner Roberts this verbal dueling included Henderson saying the following while holding a handful of garden soil: "shut up...just shut up ...you're disgusting...I so badly want to hit..." Roberts told me another neighbor who was present at the clean-up says she saw Henderson fling dirt at Milton, but it was apparently after Milton had turned around.

Commissioner Roberts declined to give specifics of what Milton said, but stated that it was "Nothing threatening." Henderson called MPD to report that Milton was "in front of [her] house antagonizing [her] and throwing things at [her]." She continued, saying "something is wrong with him," and describing Milton as "an African-American male. He's wearing blue jeans, a striped hoodie, and some gray sneakers." No fewer than four Metropolitan Police Officers arrived promptly complete with blaring sirens and flashing lights. No arrests were made.
An uninvolved resident mentioned on Twitter that Kathy Henderson was present at a community clean-up he attended only the day before. As far as he knew, no one called the police on the cleaning residents. All I can say is that Carver Terrace must be absolutely spotless at this point.
