Wednesday night, ANC6C convened its initial meeting for the 2015-2016 term and elected the following officers:
Chair: Karen Wirt
Vice Chair: Daniele Schiffman
Secretary. Tony Goodman
Treasurer: Scott Price
The ANC also heard from Councilmember Charles Allen who said he was asking to speak at each of the Ward 6 ANCs as part of a plan to strengthen relations between the ANCs and the Councilmember’s office. To that end, he announced the institution of quarterly meetings with ANC chairs and vice chairs, for the purpose of a two way exchange of information – to keep the ANCs abreast of activities of the Council and to enable him to get feedback on what’s happening in the ANCs, including how the ANCs are working or not working. He will ask the ANCs to compile a priority list of issues affecting their districts.
Allen also told the ANC that he had been appointed to the following DC City Council Committees: Education; Transportation and Environment; and Small Business/DCRA. He listed middle schools, early child literacy, and small business as three of his top issues for Ward 6.
Allen subsequently announced that on Friday, January 16, he will hold a press conference to announce the forthcoming introduction of his bill to create a new early literacy initiative in partnership with DC Libraries. The event will take place at 10:30am at Southwest Neighborhood Library (Waterfront Metro).
