What is an Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner (ANC)?
ANCs serve as the advocate for their neighborhood. They represent their community to the District of Columbia on policies and programs that impact the neighborhood such as transportation, street improvements, and economic development.
Why I’m Running For Another Term.
I have lived in Foggy Bottom for 18 years and I can’t imagine living anywhere else in the District. I am running to be a voice and advocate for all the residents who consider Foggy Bottom home. I want to offer my expertise and experience as an advocate and be a bridge for progress, cultural preservation and to strengthen the Foggy Bottom community.
In these uncertain times, it is more imperative that there be stability in leadership to ensure that the important achievements and accomplishments that have benefitted our neighborhood continues.
What Sets Me Apart
The spirit of being an immigrant provides a lens on appreciating the traditions and local culture that distinguishes Foggy Bottom from other D.C. neighborhoods. I want all my neighbors to have safer streets and sidewalks that prioritize neighbors walking, biking, and using public transit. I will work with all members of the community, regardless of their level of political involvement, to ensure everyone has a seat at the table.
When I was elected on November 6, 2018 I was entrusted with the sacred duty of being the voice for our neighbors. I have not taken that duty lightly and have strived to be fair and balanced in my approaches to issues.
