Subway Cafe Opens on Nov 30

The new Subway Cafe at 455 Massachusetts Ave NW will open on Tuesday November 30th. The “Cafe” concept has different offerings from the traditional Subway including gelato, panini sandwiches, WiFi, Seattle’s Best Coffee, and Thomas English Muffins. The general look and feel is very similar to the Subway Cafe at Eisenhower Ave in Alexandria.

The hours of operation are planned to be 7am to 10pm weekdays with slightly later openings and earlier closing times on the weekends.

Note from Marge Maceda on ANC 6C01 election

An update and personal note from Marge Maceda:

Dear area residents:

Thank you for your support during the election for ANC Commissioner. As of today, the Board of Elections has not finalized or certified the winner for the race in 6C01. At the present numbers, Keith Silver will have won the race by 8 votes. Once certified I have the option to call for a recount. I do not know yet whether I will do so.

Hopefully, Keith will recognize that with a vote so close that people in our single member district are not content with the way he has represented us in the past. I am volunteering to sit on the Alcoholic Beverage Licensing (ABL) committee and the Planning, Zoning and the Environment (PZ&E) committee for our single member district. Hopefully, Keith will ask me to represent our SMD on those committees.

Lastly, I am saddened by the way our ANC candidates represented themselves and the process of the Board of Elections at the polls. Several did not obey the “No electioneering beyond this point” signs that were quite obvious. One candidate even walked voters to the door to convince voters he was the right person for the job. Sadly, Poll officers did not do their jobs, but our candidates are given instructions about behavior at the polls and especially those looking to be reelected should have known the procedures.

I certainly offer my congratulations to those who won and wish you well as a representative of our communities.

Marge Maceda
