Special election to select new commissioner for ANC 4D04

Special election to select new commissioner for ANC 4D04

Advisory Neighborhood Commission 4D is supposed to have six commissioners, but the extremely talented Commissioner David Sheon resigned from the Commission earlier this year to give more time to his non-profit that helps young adults, Community Carrot. In his absence, a special election to fill the empty seat is scheduled for Tuesday, October 17 starting at 6:30pm at the regular ANC 4D monthly meeting at Washington Latin Public Charter School (5200 2nd St NW) . You can only vote if you live in Single Member District 4D04, and you have to vote in person, at the meeting.

To help residents get to know the candidates, here are quick interviews with both Jamie Barden and Chrysanthe "CC" Courniotes, offered in no particular order (I flipped a coin).

Finding love at a Petworth bus stop

Finding love at a Petworth bus stop

When Staci Maiers and Christopher Woods agreed to go out on a first date, they hadn't met in person yet, so they thought they'd meet up for the first time downtown at a fancy restaurant. Instead, they accidentally met at a bus stop nearby their homes in Petworth on the way to the date. Turns out, they only lived only a few houses away from each other. And the rest, as they say, is history.

New recycling rules go into effect, more can be recycled for a cleaner city

New recycling rules go into effect, more can be recycled for a cleaner city

The Department of Public Works (DPW) sent out a press today informing the public that the list of items that can be recycled has increased. Most of the new items involve food, like to-go cups, cup trays, food boxes, etc.

See full press release below and visit DPW's website for details:
