The Week Ahead…Wednesday Deadline to File Petition to Run for ANC & Photos from Last Week

As per usual, August brings quiet to the ANCs and other civic organizations. There are a few meetings later on, but for now, the most significant date in the coming week is Wednesday, when by the close of business, candidates for ANC seats must file their petitions to qualify for listing on the ballot for the November 3 election.
It’s pretty late in the game to be picking up a petition, but there’s still time. Here’s a link to the process: https://anc.dc.gov/page/anc-elections
Currently, there are four seats for which candidates have not picked up petitions:
ANC6B01 – current commissioner is Jennifer Samolyk
ANC6B 07 – current commissioner is Kelly Waud who has announced she is not seeking re-election.
ANC6D02 – current commissioner Anna Forgie
ANC6D05 – current commissioner Fredrica Kramer

If a seat is declared vacant in January when the ANCs convene for the first meeting of 2021, a special election ensues, with a new opportunity for candidates to file petitions.
