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).

It’s time for “Better Know a Commissioner!”, my blatant rip-off of Stephen Colbert’s series (and for which I am duly sorry). In my version, it’s an opportunity to get to know the ANC commissioners who represent you, even if you didn’t vote for them. You’re their constituents, and you should know who they are, what they do and how they support the community. 

This time I’m happy to introduce David Sheon, ANC 4D Commissioner for Single Member District (SMD) 4D04... Read the full interview after the break:
