ANC 2C Candidate List Fills Out

The challenger for the single member district currently held by Doris Brooks (ANC2C03) will be John Tinpe. This district extends from N Street all the way to Independence Avenue and includes most of the western part of the Gallery Place/Penn Quarter area (see map).

Tinpe is a long time resident of the Gallery Place area, and his family owns the Burma Restaurant on 6th Street. He was appointed by Mayor Williams to Chair the Commission on Asian & Pacific Islander Affairs. I don’t think he has a website yet, but according to the Mount Vernon Square blog has a meet-and-greet scheduled for September 1.

Mary Sutherland will be running against Alex Padro again for the ANC2C01 seat; she lost by a wide margin in 2004. She was one of those spearheading the opposition to granting a liquor license for BeBar (as well as for the Vegetate and Queen of Sheba restaurants). She has also worked closely with ANC Chairman Leroy Thorpe in organizing the Red Hat anti-crime patrols.

The next ANC 2C meeting is Wednesday, Sept. 6th, 6:30PM, Africare 440 R Street NW.

Most, if not all of the challengers to the incumbents should be there.
