Jim Graham Engages WSC on Security

Council Member Jim Graham will defend Washington Sports Club patrons everywhere! Or, at least in Columbia Heights.

The story has been everywhere - but a recap: One WSC gym patron had to take security matters into his own hands when a man with a bolt cutter stole his stuff in the men's locker room. He chased, he yelled, and WSC staff seemed to do something. The thief was apprehended, but the gym-goer is still livid. See the comments section on this post for more of his thoughts.

Now - Jim Graham has this to say to the gym hero:

Thank you for sharing this story and for the actions you took entirely on your own volition. I also want to applaud the off-duty police officer and guard at Bed Bath Beyond who eventually apprehended the thief.

I have copied Drew Greenwald with DC-USA on this email to bring this incident to his attention. I am requesting he work with Washington Sports Club to review their security procedures in the locker rooms and front desk coverage.

Let's keep in touch.

Bests, Jim Graham
