Get Out and Vote!
If you didn’t take advantage of early voting, today’s the day. Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. To find your polling location, click here.
While voters tend to focus on the bigger races, you also have the opportunity to vote for Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners, who serve 2 year terms and can be a community’s strongest advocates. In the surrounding Park View area, the ANC candidates that will be on the ballot are:
- 1A08 – Kent Boese
- 1A09 – Bobby Holmes
- 1A10 – Anthony Cimino
- 1A10 – Lenwood Johnson
The 1A10 race has become particularly interesting and hard fought. Incumbent Lenwood Johnson was featured in several less than flattering media posts last Friday. In one article, Johnson was quoted as saying about the home he considers his primary residence that: “I’m not very happy there [on Irving Street], so I don’t spend a whole lot of time there except for sleeping there and whatever. I do spend a lot of time in Gaithersburg.”
Challenger Anthony Cimino and his supporters have also been actively distributing flyers, posting on Facebook, and distributing election signs throughout the neighborhood.
It will all be over soon and by tomorrow we should know who’ll be serving the new 12 member Advisory Neighborhood Commission 1A come 2013.Elections, Politics comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
