Borderstan is covering four contested Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) races in the three local ANCs: ANC 1B02, 1B04, 2B09 and 2F06. The general election is Nov. 2.

Today’s interview is with Peter Raiai, the one-term incumbent in ANC 1B02. He is being challenged by Tucker Gallagher (see Borderstan interview) and Aaron Spencer (interview will run next week).

ANC 1B02 is in the heart of the U St. neighborhood and this district runs along U St. from 14th St. east to 9th St., and from S St. on the south to as far north as Florida Ave. in some places. You can learn more about 1B02 at the DC Citizen Atlas. ANC 1B has 11 commissioners and covers a large geographic area.

In an unexpected twist, Raia told Borderstan that he may be moving from ANC 1B02 in the near future. See the final question below the fold — and Raia’s answer.

ANC commissioners are elected from Single Member Districts (SMDs) in the city’s 37 ANCs. While the number of commissioners in each ANC varies, each SMD has approximately 2,000 residents. (See links to related posts at bottom.)
