Single Member (but NOT Single Issue) Representation

You can count on me to continue to represent your interests in all policy issues that affect our particular neighborhood and our quality of life. This includes a wide range of policies and programs such as traffic, parking, recreation, street improvements, zoning, economic development, police protection, sanitation & trash collection, liquor licenses, and DC's annual budget - matters that impact our everyday life.

In each of these areas, I will continue to ensure that your voice shapes government policies and outcomes. The Single Member Districts that make up our ANCs are "the government bodies with the closest official ties to the people in a neighborhood."

As your representative, I shall continue to deliver advisory views to District government agencies in the Executive Branch as well as to the DC Council, including testimony to independent agencies, boards and commissions, under rules of procedure. By law, I will also present views to federal government agencies.

Through Single Member District (2B09) representation, constituent views are given “great weight” when the final government decisions are made.

I shall continue to effectively represent your views on the wide range of issues.

Thanks again for your continued support.
