Keith Silver WaPo Op-ed on Walmart

On the heels of the recent community meeting our ANC 6C01 single member district commissioner Keith Silver has authored an Washingtonpost op-ed about the impending arrival of Walmart to the district. The piece is entitled Hold Wal-Mart to its promises in D.C. and argues that no matter how careful Walmart has been to select “matter-of-right” development opportunities the District should not welcome the retail giant unconditionally. He alleges Walmart has a record of low wages, environmental abuse, discrimination against women and African Americans and labor violations.
