The Week Ahead…ANC6B to Elect New Leadership

The Week Ahead…ANC6B to Elect New Leadership

by Larry Janezich

ANC6B will elect new leadership on Tuesday and change is in the wind as Chair Chander Jayaraman, who is running for city council, is stepping down as chair.  Though he will continue to serve out his term on the ANC, Jayaraman cannot run for re-election if he is running for city council, so his single member district seat will be contested this fall.

ANC6D is electing leadership on Monday, but it looks like current officers will be re-elected. 6D will get an update on the 11th Street Bridge Park, for those following that issue, and will consider a couple of new restaurant liquor licenses.

In addition to the election of new leadership, ANC6B will hear a presentation from the Pied Piper of the DC Health Department, Gerard Brown, on those noisome rodent issues. The Commission will also get an update on the status the ANC’s protest of District Soul Food’s liquor license based on noise and entertainment concerns. The ANC has retained attorney James Loots to represent them in pursuing the complaint before the Alcohol Beverage Regulation Administration.
