Another ANC 2C Contender

Richard Rogers says he’s running for the ANC2C04 single member district currently held by Barbara Curtis. This is an oddly-shaped area that consists of much of the Mount Vernon Square Historic district plus the blocks bounded by 8th, 5th, O, and N, which are mostly high-rise and garden apartments.

Barbara Curtis narrowly defeated Lydia Goring two years ago, and has been a reliable supporter of ANC2C Chairman Leroy Thorpe, pretty much rubber-stamping whatever he proposes.

Richard Rogers (no, not the Broadway composer—that’s “Rodgers”) has a blog that can be found here.

I also hear that Doris Brooks will have an opponent for her district (2C03)—but don’t have a name yet. Anyone know?

Still haven’t seen or heard much from Kevin Chapple, who’s running against Leroy Thorpe. Wonder what’s going on there.

I have now officially announced my candidacy for Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner in ANC 2C02. I have begun a walking tour through ANC 2C02 meeting and asking questions of local residents. I will also be meeting and talking to owners of local businesses and other organizations, in other parts of ANC 2C, which serve our residents.

I will attend the upcoming ECCA and MVSNA meetings to introduce myself to as many residents as possible and do my best to earn their support.

This election outcome will have far-reaching implications since the current incumbent of more than a decade, Mr. Mahdi Leroy J. Thorpe Jr. has also served since 2002 as Chairman of ANC 2C.

The Committee to Elect Kevin Chapple
