It’s 36 days until election day and most of you have probably made up your minds about whom you will vote in the general election. However, when it comes to local elections, most people have no idea how their District, Ward or advisory neighborhood commissions are divided or affect them. Local outlets such as Greater Greater Washington do a good job of bringing hyperlocal politics news, and reasons why you should run for these nonpartisan offices. OpenANC allows you to learn more about your own single-member district, so you know the names of the people in the race. As is now a tradition, The Hill is Home is publishing candidate statements in the order in which we’ve received them, so you know a little more about the people running and don’t go into the voting booth (or mail-in ballot) blind. –Maria Helena Carey
Statement by Denise Krepp, ANC 6B10
Thank you 6B10 residents. For the past six years, you’ve supported my efforts to improve the DC criminal justice system; increase oversight over DCRA, DPW, and DCPS; and hold DMPED accountable for actions taken regarding Reservation 13 and RFK Stadium. My plan is to continue this work in 2021 and 2022.
In 2019 upon request of ANC6B Commissioners, the Office of the DC Auditor initiated an audit of sexual harassment settlements and judgements involving DC agency employees. The audit should be released by the end of the year and I’ll work with the DC Council to ensure that legislation is passed mandating that all agencies track this data going forward.
In 2019, I hosted community meetings to obtain information from DMPED regarding Reservation 13. DMPED was not forthcoming with information and Ward 7 residents who attended these meetings faced retaliation for doing so. DMPED is currently working on an RFP regarding the land. In 2021 and 2022, I will host more community meeting regarding the land and I will make sure that everyone who attends is treated with respect and is not subject to retaliation.
Thank you for your continued support.
If you have any 6B10 related questions or concerns, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 202-546-2533.
