for ANC 1C03 Commissioner

Adams Morgan, Washington, DC

Hi, I'm Peter. My full name is Peter David Arnould Wood, PhD, but I prefer keeping it short. This November 3rd, I'd like to earn your vote to represent Single Member District 3 in the Adams Morgan Advisory Neighborhood Commission. The District of Columbia is facing a transformative moment in its history: statehood legislation passed the US House, police reform is openly and widely discussed, a fundamentally destructive administration is campaigning for another 4 years in the White House, and a global pandemic is reshaping our social fabric as we speak. Adams Morgan sits in the heart of DC, and 1C03 is the heart of Adams Morgan. The time is now for a bold, young, experienced progressive leader to ensure our neighborhood is at the forefront of change.

frequently asked questions



The District of Columbia is divided into 8 wards. Each ward is then divided into 4-6 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 are you running for office?


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 will gain in me a valuable delegate to lead the way forward.

do i live in your district?


Important question! ANC 1C03, where I'm running for 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.
