The most important issue facing my ANC is Neighborhood Well-Being and Crime. I enjoy the peaceful, family friendly environment of our community. In various newspaper articles in our neighborhood, the words “peaceful, suburban and community oriented” are often used. We are a proud and diverse neighborhood composed of duplexes, triplexes and townhomes. However, strife occurs even in the best of communities. I will positively engage those individuals who are having difficulties. Also, I will engage community stakeholders to identify the root cause of the problem and to craft a reasonable solution – counseling, mediating or engaging city services. This process is a dialogue in which the other party must show good faith and moderate their activity. My goal is to return the community to its tranquil, family friendly environment for all residents. But, I will use sterner measures if needed.
I plan to engage with residents to be an effective Commissioner in various mediums. I plan to continue to reach residents through social media, email, phone calls, and when safe (literature drops). However, I live in an intergenerational community where you have senior residents as well that need other ways to get information. So, I have utilized block captains to help disseminate critical information. I am proud to call Mr. and Mrs. Bowser my constituents and have built a great relationship discussing neighborhood issues with them both. In terms of those unfamiliar with the role, I try to be active on social media to showcase the work of an ANC and safe socially distanced community walkthroughs.
In fewer than 5 sentences, why do you think you are the best person to represent your SMD?

I am the best person to represent my SMD, because I care about my community and have been able to produce tangible results listed during this questionnaire and on my website at: www.gordonandrewfletcher.com. Moreover, I have built strong relationships with many key community stakeholders that was founded on trust, consistency, and accountability. When I first was elected an ANC Commissioner in 2017, I was living at the apartments near the Fort Totten Metro Station. Now my wife (Brittany) and I live in the same community of SMD 5A08 as homeowners. Therefore, we are committed to our community and are here to stay.
