A rainy night and a short two-hour voting period did not deter residents from Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 1B02 to turn out for Wednesday night’s special election. Candidate Alexandra Lewin-Zwerdling easily won, defeating fellow Wallach Street NW resident Stanley Mayes by a vote of 80-22.
A quorum of Commissioners from ANC 1B was pulled together shortly after the votes were counted, and a resolution was passed certifying the vote. The special election was held to fill the seat after Commissioner Aaron Spencer moved out of the district.
Commissioner-elect Lewin-Zwerdling will be the community voice for residents east of the 14th and U Street intersection on such matters as liquor licenses and development.
