On Monday, October 22 at 7:00pm, the Community Involvement Committee of ANC2B will host a candidate forum for all ANC candidates standing on the ballot for election on November 6. The forum will be held at the Chastleton Ballroom located at 1701 16th St NW – within the boundaries of ANC 2B04, where three candidates are competing for the seat that will be vacated by outgoing Commissioner Jack Jacobson.
The Forum will be moderated by resident activists Iris Molotsky and Michael Beidler and will begin at 7:00pm. All candidates will have the opportunity to give 2 minute opening statements to the public. Candidates in the two competitive seats (2B03 and 2B04) will then be asked several questions by the moderators. Following these questions, members of the public will be able to ask questions to candidates in competitive or non-competitive seats. The moderators may choose to alter this format as they see fit.
Write-in candidates or candidates for other offices are welcome to attend the event and distribute literature, but will not be provided time for statements or receiving questions.
The event will end no later than 8:30pm, so that attendees can make it home in time for the final Presidential debate.

Mike Feldstein, 2B01 – Incumbent
Kevin O’Connor, 2B02 – Incumbent
