I’m also a first-time DC voter and I haven’t formed any opinions yet, but I’m trying to browse the League of Women Voters guide to get some more information on candidates in the smaller races. Thus far, though, I’ve mostly been disappointed at the number of individuals running for ANC commissioner posts who failed to respond to the LWV’s questionnaire. (This includes my own district, which has a candidate running unopposed for a vacant seat.) I mean, I get that this isn’t exactly high elected office and candidates don’t have the resources to run a real campaign. But given that the LWV is basically the most widely-distributed voter guide AND they only ask two questions (“What is the most important issue facing your neighborhood?” and “What will you do to be an effective Commissioner?”)…if a candidate can’t be mindful to respond to this very simple outlet for communicating with constituents, what does it say about the job they’ll do as Commissioner?
