Boese Will Run for Reelection to Advisory Neighborhood Commission 1A08 Seat

BoeseforDCOver the past few months, I’ve been asked on a number of occasions if I would be running for reelection to the ANC this fall. The short answer is yes, I will run for reelection and hope to be fortunate enough to continue serving the community if elected (campaign website here). Nominating petitions for candidates interested in running for ANC seats will be available on July 7th, and I’m sure I’ll be picking up my petitions on Monday.

In making this decision, I reflected upon what has been accomplished in the past 3 1/2 years and thought ahead to the many challenges that are ahead of the commuity in the coming 2 years. These issues include the affordability of housing, redevelopment of the former Hebrew Home, balancing new development with the historic character of the neighborhood, and finding permanent solutions that will move the redevelopment of Park Morton and the Bruce-Monroe site forward. I’m also interested in finding ways to bring more trees to the community and supporting the arts and humanities.

There are also projects in process that I would like to see through — namely the renovation of the Park View Recreation Center’s field house and the continued modernization of the Park View School building. I’ve been extremely involved in both and expect to see progress on each of them before the year is out.

With this declaration, I officially join Rashida Brown as a candidate for ANC1A. Brown openly declared her intention to run for the ANC1A10 seat in May of this year.

I’ll keep the community informed about others running for ANC1A as candidates declare their candidacy or pick up nominating petitions.
