ESTRADA Named Outstanding Citizen Activist

At its annual Holiday luncheon held last month, the Federation of Citizens Associations named Ramon Estrada as the Outstanding Citizen Activist for 2014. They cited his role in cleaning up the crime in the 14th and U neighborhood back in the 1980's when the area was known for drug dealing and was considered "dangerous and unsafe." They also recognized his 10 years as an ANC Commissioner representing SMD 2B09 promoting the redevelopment of the neighborhood. He also served on the Alcohol Omnibus Bill Task Force helping to reform ABRA regulations. He is currenlty serving his second term as President of the Dupont Circle Citizens Association. The Dupont Current newspaper acknowledged his work and contributions and praised his efforts to transform his community into a "model neighborhood."
