The Week Ahead

Monday, July 30

Eastern Market Community Advisory Committee (EMCAC) meets at 7:00pm, in the North Hall, Eastern Market. Among items on the agenda is an update on Eastern Market’s policy on solicitations, petitioning etc., on Market property.  The Committee will also consider Resolutions of Appreciation for two Market vendors who passed away last week –  Becky Mensah and Bob King.

Thursday, July 31

12:00noon – 2:00pm.  Mayor Gray kicks off the latest iteration of “Murals DC” and DC’s fight against illegal graffiti at the “carnival” celebration of the completion of a mural on the entrance of the Rumsey Aquatic Facility (next to Eastern Market) by artist Aniekan Udofia.  The announcement of the event calls it a carnival festivity, featuring a trapeze school, face painting, animal balloons, cotton candy, sno-cones, music and free giveaways.   Murals DC is a DPW project that combats illegal graffiti with original innovative murals throughout DC.

Aniekan Udofia is the artist who created the mural “American Express” on 8th Street, just below the freeway.  CHC’s post on that and more information on the artist can be found here:  http://bit.ly/1s0mI9y

ANC6B and ANC6D Still Shy of Sufficient Candidates – Deadline Looms

There are still three seats – one in ANC6B and two in ANC6D – which currently have no candidates for the fall election.  To become a candidate, a nominating petition signed by 25 registered voters in a candidate’s Single Member District (SMD) must be filed with the DC Board of Elections by August 6.  These nominating petitions will be posted in the Board’s office for a ten-day challenge period during which any registered District voter may challenge the validity of any petition by a written statement signed by the challenger and filed with the Board. The statement must specify concisely the alleged defect(s) in the petition.  Petitions are declared invalid most frequently because residents who are ineligible to sign them are disqualified, which takes the number of signatures below the required 25.

Following is a list of the Single Member Districts in the four Ward Six ANCs which comprise Capitol Hill, the current commissioner for each SMD, and the potential candidates who have picked up nominating petitions as of 5:53pm on July 25 (according to the DC Board of Elections) to get their names on the ballot in the general election in November.
