Información Biográfica

What is the most important issue facing your Single Member District and how do you intend to address it?

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 am a professional emergency manager, with a background in sustainability and construction and as a DC Councilmember's Chief of Staff. ANC Commissioner 2011-2017, ANC 6C Committee member 2009-2011 & 2020-Present.
Our neighborhood has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade, and new apartment buildings continue to be built in our area. Managing this growth is our most import issue. I will continue to support more public benches and other places for people to gather, and support new and existing businesses to serve the new and existing residents. I also support improved transit and bike lanes to ensure that residents don’t need to drive to reach their jobs, activities, or services.
I plan to hold regular office hours to meet with residents, and will also send regular email updates to our neighbors. To support the many new residents in apartment buildings under construction now, I will work with their building management to attend any resident meetings that they have.
An additional question is what is the most important issue for the ANC, not just the SMD. Each Commissioner represents a small part of the neighborhood, but it’s the full ANC that has “great weight” and votes on issues of importance for our area. For ANC 6C, improving transit and bike access along the H Street corridor and Union Station is the most important issue. We should speed buses & streetcars and make pedestrian/bike connections safer by adding more dedicated lanes.
