Your vote and involvement are important!
What is the ANC?
The Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANC) guide the District government in making decisions and addressing problems. ANC input matters. To serve its community effectively, the ANC must have its fingers on the pulse of the community.
Can the ANC do more for you?
I am running for re-election because there is so much more to do, and with your support, we can continue to enhance our community. This includes providing local input on matters of public safety, construction, business development, and the preservation of our green space.
What is the best way for the ANC to serve our community?
In the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood, the solution to improving community outreach can be accomplished by small, practical methods that I have been implementing over the last two years.
- Developing a comprehensive website that publishes every action the ANC takes, so that residents can always find our resolutions, letters of support, and agendas;
- Visiting condo association meetings to keep residents updated on neighborhood events/issues, and staying in regular contact with condo board members;
- Hosting town hall meetings on the more controversial and significant issues facing the neighborhood; and
- Maintaining a large distribution list that includes residents, businesses, and property managers of the neighborhood buildings and sending monthly emails of neighborhood updates and ANC agendas.
“Community outreach is the foundation of a successful ANC, and the small, but strategic, steps I will implement will strengthen that foundation.”
I would appreciate your vote and support on November 6th.–Alex Marriott
