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
I believe I will make an excellent ANC6c05 commissioner because I have been a part of this community since 2005. I have a deep interest in the prosperity of my neighborhood because this is where I live, work, and where my kids go to school.
I have been a forensic scientist for the government for over 20 years so I have a strong sense of justice that I can bring to all ANC issues. As a Realtor who has seen this neighborhood go through changes, I want to help guide it through the changes that are to come.
My vision for the next 2 years is to focus on educational opportunities for our neighborhood kids (can our children get into the schools of their choice?), promote smart growth within our community, partner with the commercial merchant association to combat trash/litter, and to be the true liaison that we need to advocate for our neighborhood.
