From Michelle Lancaster
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 William Girardo, who is challenging five-term incumbent Deborah Thomas in ANC 1B04 (see Borderstan interview).
1B04 is on the northwest side of the U Street neighborhood and covers a swath from 12th St. to New Hampshire Ave. south of Florida Ave., running along U Street from 14th to 15th St. NW. You can learn more about the district at the DC Citizen Atlas. ANC 1B has 11 commissioners and covers a large geographic area to the north.
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.)
