Focusing on six words: Helping government do its job better

Dorobek Insider: Neighbors rooting for Marty Wagner

with one comment

I’ve been tracking the condition of Martin “Marty” Wagner fairly closely. On July 6, Wagner fell off the roof of his Arlington, VA house and has essentially been in a coma since then.

Wagner’s neighbors are rooting for him. One of his neighbors was good enough to send me this photo of a sign that is in the Cherrydale neighborhood of Arlington, VA.

We’re all rooting for you, Marty!

As I always do in these instances… I will have Wagner updates when there are significant developments. From regular updates from the family, there are two ways to stay updated.

This site was created by Bruce McConnell for Wagner’s wife and they post updates there regularly.

* CarePages
As I have mentioned, I have been really impressed with, part of Steve Case’s Revolution Health organization. CarePages is a Web site that helps the family provide information about sick family members. You can find it at (Once there, you have to register… and then you can search for “MartinWagner” — no space.)

* If you want to send something to Wagner or his family…

I will continue to be a funnel. You can send something to me at Federal News Radio. The address is here:

Christopher Dorobek
for Martin Wagner
c/o Federal News Radio 1500 AM WFED
3400 Idaho Ave, NW
Washington, DC 20016

I’ll make sure it gets to the family.
