With just eight weeks until the November 6 ANC election, the Shaw Dupont Citizens Alliance (SDCA) will host a Candidate Forum on Thursday, September 20, for the four candidates running for ANC1B’s newest single member district, 1B-12.

The Forum will start at 7 pm at the Thurgood Marshall Center (1816 12th Street NW). Candidates Erling Bailey, John Green, Zahra Jilani (see Borderstan’s candidate profiles) and Dan Wittels will attend and introduce themselves and their ideas to the community. In addition, attendees will be able to ask the candidates questions and provide input to the candidates.

Noah Smith (the ANC 2B-09 candidate whose district falls within the SDCA boundaries) will also address the public to introduce himself, his agenda and take any questions from attendees.

  • What is SDCA? Can this be considered a NIMBY group, or the opposite?

  • Old U Street

    NIMBY. They are the group that formed itself in a few blcoks near Wallach Place. One of the things they avocate from is a liour license moratorium.

  • T Street

    The SDCA is the ultimate NIMBY group. It was formed by a group of Wallach Place residents and neighbors living close by who weren’t happy that the U Street Neighborhood Association was moderate and wouldn’t do their extreme anti-development bidding. They’re also pushing hard for a liquor license moratorium in a zone that goes well beyond their boundaries. One of the four ANC 1B-12 candidates, Dan Wittles, is on SDCA’s board. Do NOT vote for him unless you want to see the neighborhood set back ten years.
