Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2B is pleased to announce that Nick DelleDonne has been elected as the next commissioner for single member district 2B04. Nick is filling the vacancy created by the resignation of former Commissioner Michael Upright. After the conclusion of a special election held during the ANC’s regular March meeting on Wednesday, March 8th, it was determined that Nick was the winner of the election. He will be sworn-in by Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans later this week.
A resident of historic Riggs Place NW, Nick has organized neighborhood action in promoting rodent control and took part in a neighborhood collaboration that won a precedent-setting decision from the Historic Preservation Review Board to stop intrusive development on the alley of Riggs Place. He has been a Dupont Circle resident since 1992 and currently works in residential landscape design.
A union organizer in the public sector, Nick led the movement to use third party arbitration to resolve employee grievances and won one of the first negotiated flextime agreements in the federal government. He hosted a local radio program with a focus on labor issues and has directed public relations and communications programs.
Nick is grateful for the opportunity to work for community betterment through community activism in his new capacity representing district 2B04 as Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner. He looks forward to working closely with the Dupont Circle community.

Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2B
Following the retirement of former Commissioner Michael Upright, last Friday the DC Board of Elections published the process for filling the vacancy for district 2B04 in the DC Register. Any resident of district 2B04, a map of which can be found here, who has an interest in running for the vacant seat can visit the Board of Elections at 441 4th Street NW, Suite 250 North to pick up petitions to run for the seat. Residents must collect the signatures of at least 25 voters registered in district 2B04 in order to run for the seat. The beginning of the petition pick-up period was on Monday, January 9th, and the completed petitions are due back to the Board of Elections by Monday, January 30th.
Following the submission period for the petitions, there will be a challenge period from Thursday, February 2nd to Wednesday, February 8th where residents will have the ability to challenge individual signatures on a candidate’s petitions. If only one candidate completes the challenge period, that candidate will become the new commissioner for district 2B04. If more than one candidate completes the challenge period, a special election will be held at an upcoming ANC meeting to elect the new commissioner.
A copy of the vacancy notice that was published in the DC Register can be found here. For more information about this election process, please call the Board of Elections at (202) 727-2525.
Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2B is pleased to announce that Amy Johnson has been elected as the next commissioner for single member district 2B01.

She is delighted to be representing district 2B01 as Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner and looks forward to working closely with the Dupont Circle community.
The Dupont Circle ANC announces the date, time, location and process for voting in a special election to fill a vacancy for the 2B07 Commissioner. You can check whether you live in 2B07 by reviewing our map, HERE.
The election will be held during the regularly scheduled monthly meeting of ANC 2B on Wednesday, October 14, 2015 from 7:15pm to 9:00pm. The meeting will be held at the Brookings Institution at 1775 Massachusetts Ave NW.
Eligibility to Vote: The election will be open to registered voters of SMD 2B07 only. Potential voters must present themselves at the polling place and must have either a BOEE voter identification card showing that they are registered to vote in SMD 2B07 or be listed as a voter in SMD 2B07 on the voter registration list provided by the Board of Elections and Ethics (BOEE).
The two candidates will appear on the ballot in the following order:
- Holly Biglow

Information on the process for voting and counting ballots, which is provided by the Board of Elections, is available below.
Commissioner Underhill announced resignation earlier this month. Opportunity for 2B07 resident to fill seat through the end of 2016.
Earlier this month Commissioner Justine Underhill announced her resignation from the Dupont Circle ANC to pursue a career opportunity outside of Washington. On July 17, the Board of Elections certified a vacancy for single member district 2B07 and today we are seeking a committed and enthusiastic resident of 2B07 to fill that position.
The 2B07 commissioner represents the areas immediately east and southeast of the circle; a map of each of the single member districts is available HERE.
Those interested in seeking election to the seat must pick up petitions from the Board of Elections starting on Monday and get 25 signatures of registered voters who live in 2B07 by August 10th. There will then be a petition challenge period from August 13-19 to ensure that the signatures are from valid residents.
If there is more than one candidate who successfully files petitions, there will be a special election announced for either September or October. If there is only one candidate, that person will be certified as the Commissioner for 2B07. (If there are no candidates, the petition process starts over again).
Commissioner Underhill has been invaluable in bringing the neighborhood together around issues big and small, including the ongoing development process of the St. Thomas Church property at 1772 Church St. The 2B07 commissioner also leads the ANC response to all applications for that district, including alcohol licensing, historic preservation and zoning cases. ANC commissioners are non-partisan and unpaid elected representatives who ensure that the voice of the neighborhood is heard in city decisions.
If you have any questions about running for election or what the position involves, please do not hesitate to contact ANC Chair Noah Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As announced in this blog posting from July 2014 and at the regular August 2014 meeting of the ANC, I’m retiring from the position of Chair as of today, September 9th, in advance of retiring from the ANC at the end of the calendar year — so that other Commissioners can get experience managing the organization and be better prepared for the next term of the ANC. Many thanks to those of you who had kind words to share after I made the announcement!
In accordance with the ANC’s by-laws, Vice Chair Noah Smith will serve as acting chair as of today. In addition, we will need to fill this vacancy in the chair position at the next regular public meeting, which is tomorrow, September 10, 2014. This will be the first order of business on our agenda, after calling the meeting to order.
ANC 2B will be co-hosting a candidates forum for the special election for At-Large Council seat, along with the Dupont Circle Citizens Association and the Foggy Bottom Association. The forum will be this Thursday, March 28th at 7:00pm at the American Cardiological College — the “Heart House” — located at 24th and N Streets, N.W.
The moderators will be Tom Sherwood and Mark Segraves. Six of the seven candidates have already confirmed.
Please join us for this important event, and please mark your calendars for the special election on Tuesday, April 23rd.
The ANC hosted a special election last night for the vacant 2B05 seat between candidates Dito Sevilla and Abigail Nichols. The certified winner was Abigail Nichols. The ANC has forwarded the attached 2B05 Special Election Certification to the Board of Elections and Ethics for formal approval. Once the BoEE approves, Commissioner-elect Nichols will be sworn in by Ward 2 Council Member Jack Evans, and she will join the ANC for our April public meeting.
Many thanks to all from 2B05 who came out to vote, and also to Gottlieb Simon and his staff from the Office of ANCs for managing the special election. Congratulations, as well, to both candidates for a respectful race.
