Hi, I'm Peter. On January 2, 2021 I began representing Single Member District 3 in the Adams Morgan Advisory Neighborhood Commission. I'm running for a second term and hope to earn your support for the election on November 8.

 

In the District of Columbia we face a wide range of challenges, both unique and common. As the potential for statehood grows agonizingly closer, the role of DC's neighborhoods is as important as ever. Adams Morgan is no exception, with calls to action ranging from big picture (use clean energy, make housing actually affordable) to municipal (eliminate violent crime, pay teachers more) to the hyperlocal (clean the parks, feed the hungry).

As commissioner, I have eagerly put in the hard work needed to make our goals a reality. Thank you to everyone who has done that work by my side. The future may seem intimidating and uncertain, but in community there is always power.

frequently asked questions

WHAT IS AN ANC?

 

The District of Columbia is divided into 8 wards. Each ward is then divided into 5-7 Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANCs). And each of those is divided into Single Member Districts (SMDs), with about 2,000 residents apiece. An ANC is the second smallest unit of DC local government, and each one has monthly meetings with all its SMD commissioners.

why did you run for commissioner?

 

My entire life I've been enthusiastic about learning from others. And the more I've listened, I've realized how passionate I am about transforming our collective knowledge into a greater good. As ANC commissioner in Adams Morgan, I see a great opportunity to direct that passion toward maintaining a neighborhood diverse in people and opinion. With my experience, care for nuance, and Midwestern work ethic, I am confident Adams Morgan gains in me a valuable delegate to lead the way forward.

do i live in your district?

 

Important question! ANC 1C03, where I'm currently in office, is a small and densely populated area. Its boundaries are 18th and 19th St NW on the east and west, and Biltmore St and Wyoming St on the north and south (see map below). You can search your address here to find out if you are in 1C03 or a different district.
