Dear Friends:

This website was created to post and archive comments I circulate to residents of Takoma Park’s Ward One and other members of the community about municipal matters.

My comments usually take the form of an email message a few days before each City Council meeting listing the agenda for the session and my thoughts and positions on each item. I also sometimes send out statements on key local issues, and occasionally on national politics. This site -- through the “blog” link -- will allow readers to read current and older messages (dating back to November 2015 when I was elected to the Council).

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, via email ( or phone (240-319-6281). You can also go to the official Takoma Park City Council page for details on Council meeting agendas, past and future, and other information. And, if you would like to start receiving my weekly updates directly, you can sign up below.

Peter Kovar
