Final ANC 2B Agenda for Wednesday, October 11th and Special Election Update

Hello neighbors,

The final agenda for this evening’s ANC 2B regular October meeting has been posted on the ANC’s website and can be found here. As a reminder, the meeting will be on Wednesday, October 11th at 7:00 pm at the Brookings Institution, 1775 Massachusetts Avenue NW.

I would like to provide several documents that are listed in the agenda. They are as follows:

  • The list of alcoholic beverage license renewal applications that the commission will consider at this evening’s meeting can be found here.
  • The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board’s proposed rulemaking on changes to the DC Municipal Regulations can be found here.
  • The District Department of Transportation’s plan to improve safety at the intersection of Connecticut Avenue & R Street NW and the intersection of Connecticut Avenue & Florida Avenue NW can be found here.

I would also like to provide an update regarding the special election for the vacancy of single member district 2B07. Yesterday, Sean Treanor, one of two candidates for the special election, officially withdrew his candidacy for the single member district 2B07 vacancy. Given the fact that Kari Cunningham, the second candidate for the special election, was the only candidate remaining, the DC Board of Elections certified Kari as the new 2B07 commissioner. As a result, the Board of Elections also cancelled this evening’s special election. There will thus be no voting during this evening’s ANC meeting.

Kari was sworn-in by Councilmember Jack Evans earlier today. This evening’s ANC meeting will be her first official meeting as the new 2B07 commissioner. The commission looks forward to welcoming her this evening.

Please let your single member district commissioner or I know if you have any questions about the meeting agenda. We look forward to seeing you this evening!

Sincerely,

Peter Sacco
Executive Director
Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2B

Board of Elections Announces Process for Filling the ANC’s Vacancy for District 2B07

Following the retirement of former Commissioner John Kupcinski, the DC Board of Elections has published the process for filling the vacancy for district 2B07 in the DC Register. Any resident of district 2B07, 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 2B07 in order to run for the seat. The beginning of the petition pick-up period was on Monday, July 24th, and the completed petitions are due back to the Board of Elections by Monday, August 14th.

Following the submission period for the petitions, there will be a challenge period from Thursday, August 17th to Wednesday, August 23th 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 2B07. 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.
