Qualifications ANC since 2009; Current Board Chair Glover Park Main Street; served 3 terms as president of Glover Park Citizens' Association
People here want more and better restaurants and retail in the Glover Park commercial center, which is in my SMD. They also want fewer rats. I spearheaded the creation of Glover Park Main Street and continue to help it revitalize the area as its Board Chair. GPMS helped most of our businesses survive the Covid shutdowns and has paid for facade and signage upgrades throughout the corridor. I work with business owners, homeowners and DPW to address the rat issue on a regular basis.
Reaching people depends on their willingness/interest in being reached. They need to sign up for listservs and visit the ANC website to get information. I have collected emails of many of my constituents and use the Glover Park listserv as well as the ANC email list to call for comments on pending issues or to communicate information. I also reach out through the Glover Park Citizens' Association. The ANC has a monthly column in the Glover Park Gazette. I think outreach to constituents is a weak link in the ANC process and our ANC often discusses how we can do it better.

Our neighborhood’s priority is to keep neighborhood kids in Stoddert. The demographic pressures in Ward 3 are real, and Ward 3 needs new schools and more school space. But Glover Park is unique in how tightly it is knit into Stoddert. Every kid in Glover Park should be able to walk to their local school. No little kids should be sent south around Whitehaven, through Burleith, and down to the new Foxhall ES. We need to invest in growing space at Stoddert to solve the existing over-crowding and plan for demographic changes. Once Stoddert has been expanded as much as it can, we can evaluate other changes.
ANC 3B is still conducting meetings not just online, but in a tightly controlled webinar format, where participants can’t see who else is attending, and can’t engage with each other. I am out in the community every day, walking to school, to the park, and shopping. As a Commissioner I will create opportunities for residents to meet each other. I will organize offline, community-building events such as safety walks and block parties. By identifying changes we can make together, I will help neighbors believe in their own agency again and in the power of collective action.
