The Hill is Home is sharing the statements of ANC candidates in our general region. Although the main focus of our blog is Capitol Hill –served by ANCs 6A through 6C– we feel that a community is made stronger by the neighbors with whom we share a close geographical area. We are honored to share candidate statements from neighbors from Ivy City to Navy Yard, with minor style edits. To all of you who are running: Thank you. –Maria Helena Carey and Kate McFadden
My name is Brant Miller, and I am running for ANC 6D07 because I care about the needs of our community. I want to ensure that all residents, long-time and just-arriving, are engaged and connected to one another as our neighborhood grows.
Some of the issues I care about most and want to address while serving in this position are:
Safety: I want to keep our neighborhoods safe and secure for all members of the community. I have been very engaged in violence prevention, and have served on the Leadership Council of the District’s Victim Assistance Network.
Housing: I graduated from the George Washington University in 2017 with my Masters in Public Policy. During my studies, I focused on housing issues and urban policy. I care about and want to address issues involving housing, such as affordability, Inclusionary Zoning and the Planned Unit Development process, as our community grows.
Transportation: I have extensive experiencing engaging ANC Commissioners throughout DC on transportation issues, and have attended numerous Transportation Committee meetings in different ANCs. I am knowledgeable about the processes necessary to make vital changes to our neighborhood’s streets as they change and transport new community members and visitors.
