ANC 1B needs a new commissioner.
The position opened when former commissioner Mitchel Herckis resigned on June 11, ANC 1B-11 commissioner Robb Hudson said.
Last month, the ANC board published the position opening with the D.C. Board of Elections in hopes of finding a candidate.
“It would be unfortunate for 1B-04 to go unrepresented any longer,” said Hudson in an e-mail to Borderstan. “Those residents need a voice on the Commission that represents their needs and interests specifically.”
To qualify for the election, candidates must live in 1B04, a small area of city that includes slices of 12th to 15th streets NW, Florida Avenue NW, and W Street NW.
Potential candidates must also solicit signatures from local residents.
If no one applies for candidacy, the D.C. Board of Elections will continue to declare the vacancy until a candidate steps forward.
Locals can pick up nominating petitions at the D.C. Board of Elections office located at 441 4th Street NW.
