Dupont resident Martin Espinoza officially announced his plans in running for Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner (ANC) in the District 04 seat in 2B/Dupont. According to a statement from Espinoza, he would make the neighborhood’s public safety a priority, and focus on the importance of vigilant and active residents, as well as community involvement and aesthetic restoration.
Jack Jacobson, the ANC 2B04 incumbent, is currently running for DC School Board in Ward 2. He was elected to the seat in a 2007 special election before winning a pair of two-years terms. Espinoza sits on the Board of Directors for The DC Center and is co-founder of DC Stonewall Sports and DC Stonewall Kickball.
District 04 is the most densely populated, and smallest in geographic area, of ANC 2B‘s nine districts. By law, each ANC district is to have approximately 2,000 residents. The southern boundary is Q Street, running north to S Street NW, and from 15th Street to 17th Street NW.
Both school board and ANC seats are non-partisan, without primaries. The general election is November 6.
