How will you engage with residents to be an effective Commissioner, especially reaching those who are unfamiliar with the role and value of ANCs?

Is there a question you wish we had asked? If so, what is the question and how would you answer it?

Qualifications I have lived in the Petworth neighborhood for over ten years, and I have been a Washington, DC resident since 2003. As a long-time public servant in Federal government, I have a strong, intuitive grasp of how government works and a desire to make local government work better for my community.
As a primarily residential area, SMD 4C06 is dealing with the combined pressures that come with significant population growth. These include access to affordable housing, transportation, public safety, business development, and quality schools. I believe residents are supportive of equitable growth policies and are seeking ways to contribute to the process. I intend to apply my background in government towards building productive, positive relationships across the ANC, within my community, and with key DC government agencies. I have dedicated my career in public service to driving continuous improvement and making government programs more effective. I intend to apply those skills to my work as Commissioner.
As part of my initial outreach efforts, I will leverage my relationships with past and current ANC members to meet residents and local business owners. I will use public events and gathering places, such as Celebrate Petworth, to connect with residents. In addition to ANC meetings, I will work to determine the right balance of SMD meetings for collecting constituent input and concerns, answering questions, and providing information. I will also experiment with different types of media for reaching residents.
