NEWS: ANC 2B appoints Stephanie Maltz as 2B06 liquor liaison

At our July 2012 public meeting, the ANC appointed Dupont resident Stephanie Maltz as our special non-commissioner liaison for Single Member District  (SMD) 2B06 liquor licensing issues.  The ANC is very grateful for Stephanie’s volunteerism.

Commissioner Mike Silverstein, who represents 2B06, is also an appointed member of the city’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Board.  As such, he is normally forced to recuse himself from liquor-related issues at the ANC level.  2B06 has over 60 licensed establishments, more than any other SMD in Dupont, and one of the most of any SMD in the city.  In her role as special liaison for 2B06, Stephanie will communicate with residents and establishments in 2B06 about liquor-licensing issues and make recommendations to the full ANC when applicants come before us.

About Stephanie: Stephanie Maltz has lived in the Dupont area since 2006. As a policy consultant, she has experience working on a wide range of issues from small businesses to education to public health and safety. She is the treasurer of her condo board and volunteers at Ross Elementary as a “Girls on the Run coach.”  Stephanie lives in ANC 2B03 and is looking forward to working with the residents and businesses in the Dupont community.

NEWS: Man Sentenced to 11½ Years in Prison for Violent Crimes in Dupont Circle Neighborhood

A man with a history of criminal activity in the Dupont Circle area was sentenced last week to over 11 years in prison stemming from an attempted robbery and assault in the 1800 block of Jefferson Place, NW in January 2012.

Reginald Teneyck was convicted of assault with intent to rob, felony assault, and destruction of property according to a release from the U.S. Attorney for the District of Colombia.  Teneyck broke the window of an occupied parked car and began assaulting the driver in an attempt to steal his laptop. Several witnesses intervened and held him down until police arrived.

The lengthy sentence, ensuring that Teneyck will be off the streets for almost a dozen years, is a testament to the hard work of our 2nd District police force at MPD and the prosecutors at the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

In the future, the Dupont Circle ANC would like to begin coordinating the submission of Community Impact Statements to influence the sentencing of criminals who have affected our neighborhood. For more information, contact Noah Smith or Kishan Putta, the ANC’s Public Safety Liaisons.
