ANC6B02 Commissioner Diane Hoskins Resigns
by Larry Janezich
ANC6B02 Commissioner Diane Hoskins announced her resignation today, effective immediately, saying the demands of a new job were incompatible with serving the neighborhood. The announcement came in the form of a letter to Director of the DC Board of Elections, Alice Miller, and is as follows:
Hoskins was elected in 2014 to succeed retiring commissioner Ivan Frischberg. She recently stepped down as ANC6B Treasurer. Hoskins and has been an active supporter of efforts to manage the impact on the neighborhood of Hine Project and has been the ANC’s representative on the Eastern Market Community Advisory Committee. Her single member district includes Eastern Market, the Hine Project, and Eastern Market Metro Plaza.
The usual procedure for filling the seat once ANC6B declares it vacant is by special election at a time and place determined by the ANC. Capitol Hill Corner will post the details as they become available. A map of ANC6B is below showing the boundaries of Single Member District 6B02. If only one candidate emerges, the usual procedure is for the ANC to declare that candidate the new commissioner.
