Qualifications I am a retired health care and not-for-profit manager. I’ve been vice- president of a non-profit hospital, executive director of Ronald McDonald Charities of Alabama, and of CommunityHealth, a Chicago free clinic. I’ve also held executive positions in several health insurance entities. I have Masters in Public Health and in Business. Since moving to DC in 2013, I’ve worked with non-profits, both as an employee and volunteer, including Capitol Hill Village, the Association of American Medical Colleges, Compass Pro Bono, Good Neighbors Capitol Hill and Washington English Center. I serve on our ANC’s Economic Development and Zoning (EDZ) Committee.
Even on the Hill, Covid and the recent political environment have eroded many of the key foundations of civil society. This is apparent in the increased flouting of traffic laws, with resultant injuries and deaths, and increased crime, with resultant resident concerns about public safety. These problems will not go away overnight. However, we need a two-pronged approach—both addressing dangerous and unlawful behavior, while at the same time working on issues of equity, inclusion and opportunity. In addition, although our power is limited, we must all work through all possible channels to protect home rule in DC and to support long-overdue DC statehood.
I would welcome input from constituents via email, text or phone calls. In addition, I will consistently participate in ANC and subcommittee meetings, which are open for public comment. I would also attend community events where ANC6A03 residents gather and would solicit concerns and input from constituents. Finally, working with other ANC commissioners, our city council member and his staff, I would continue to monitor issues and initiatives in the community and would periodically update constituents by email, and potentially through other electronic media (e.g. Facebook, website, Twitter, etc.)
What are your objectives as ANC SMD Commissioner?

If elected ANC commissioner, some of my objectives would include:

• Communicating and listening to residents regarding key issues in our community, including public safety, transportation, health and social services, housing and education.

• Encouraging development that supports diversity, equity and the unique historic and residential nature of our community.

• Supporting timely and effective responses from DC government agencies and elected officials to resident concerns.

• Supporting grassroots efforts for DC statehood and protection of home rule.
