I’m an avid reader of your blog. In the past, you have highlighted local candidates running for election. This week I received the DC Voter Guide and noticed that at least in ANC 4C (my district) there are a slew of new candidates who I know nothing about. With all the development taking place in Petworth and other neighbourhood issues(church parking, dog parks, etc.,) it would be nice to know a little more about some of these candidates before we go into the polling booth on election day. HELP!!!
Back in March 2007 I wondered what ANC representatives even did. There were lots of good responses (here.) Of course now I know their importance given all the drama around the YES! Organic Market’s quest for a liquor license as well as the church median parking issue. So selecting a good ANC Commissioner is actually quite important. Fortunately I am happy with my current commissioner. Sadly, I have no idea how you can find out more about the ones competing for seats. My suggestion would be to attend an ANC meeting but I think it may be too late for that since the election is next Tuesday. So any suggestions given the little amount of time left on how to learn more about ANC candidates?
