Over the past week, I walked up to every door I could access in the future ANC 5C07 and left the informational card below. It actually took longer that I had expected, but it was great to be able to see the neighborhood from the front door of each of my future constituents and a pleasure to talk to the folks I was able to run into.
By my count, yesterday I knocked on about 85 of my neighbors doors, gathering signatures and talking to folks about what’s important to the in the neighborhood.
And today I turned in well over the minimum of 25 signatures to get on the ballot for ANC 5C07 on November 6, 2012.
While walking the neighborhood, I talk to folks about why I am running and I heard their concerns about the neighborhood. One resident is worried about commercial trucks parking on his street, as they tend to do daily. Another was interested in speed bumps/humps for their intersection. These are just two examples of exactly why I’m running for ANC — to do the little things that will keep our community great! I’ll work with residents to make sure that commercial entities respect our parking rules and I’ll happily work with neighbors to control the speed of cars (many with Maryland plates!) that speed through the neighborhood, creating unsafe conditions for our seniors and youth.
