St. Elizabeths - Stop DHS HQ consolidation with USCG

Reconsider total costs of consolidation in terms of great costs of rehabilitating extensively decayed buildings with little national historical value. The Department, government, and tax payer will incur vast costs as a result of this rehabilitation, movement of large numbers of employees work spaces, loss of employees due to decreases in work-life balance, rehire costs, retraining costs, decreased efficiency, etc. Also, it isn’t a great idea in my opinion to place the operational leadership and staff of a department in one location. Doing so presents too easy a target to bad actors.


Stop move/consolidation with USCG.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
