Election Results Good for Park View & ANC 1A
Now that the election is over and the results are in, local representation for our neighborhood appears to be very promising moving into 2013.
At the ANC level, the biggest change in both the neighborhood and the entire Commission is that incumbent Lenwood Johnson (1A10) was soundly defeated by challenger Anthony Cimino. Johnson’s antics are well-known and have frustrated many over the years. It is expected that the election of Cimino will bring a fair degree of civility back to the Commission and, more importantly, service and representation back to the residents of 1A10.
Commissioners Kent Boese and Bobby Holmes ran unopposed and will also be returning to the Commission. Of all the ANC 1A Commissioners running for re-election, only Commissioner Bill Brown was defeated in his race for the 1A06 seat to challenger Patrick W. Flynn.
At the DC Council level, the election of David Grosso also bodes well for Park View. While Grosso lives in Ward 5, his parents live in the neighborhood on the 700 block of Rock Creek Church Road. Therefore, he is familiar with both our community and issues — something other at-large Councilmembers have not been.Elections, Government
