This month nominating petitions for Advisory Neighborhood Council (ANC) positions are available for pickup from the DC Board of Elections and Ethics (DCBOEE). As capably outlined by the Frozen Tropics blog most seats run unopposed in elections but it is very simple to get on the ballot. A potential candidate only needs to earn 25 signatures from registered voters within their Single Member Disctrict (SMD).
Thus far I’ve heard that it is very likely we’ll have two capable and experienced residents running against the incumbents in ANC6C SMDs 6C01 and 6C02. I’ll share more details when these candidates become more official and have had time to draft and distribute their introductions.
ANC 6C01 spans most of the Triangle including the following residential buildings: City Vista, 555 Mass, 425 Mass, Sonata, Madrigal Lofts, Museum Square, and Carmel Plaza. Our current 6C01 representative, Keith Silver, lives just across New Jersey Ave in the Golden Rule Apartments.
Word is that a Yale Lofts residents may also throw their hat into the mix in ANC2C.
