ANC2F: Districts 03 and 08
At its regular monthly meeting last night (March 5), ANC2F Chair Matt Raymond (district 07) announced that this was the last meeting for ANC Commissioner Chris Linn (district 03). Linn is buying a home in Columbia Heights. The Commission passed a resolution thanking Linn for his work.
In January, Commissioner Matt Connolly (district 08) left the commission. On an announcement on the ANC web site, Connolly said he was moving back to Boston. At its January meeting, ANC2F thanked Connolly for his service.
At last night's meeting, Raymond announced nominating petitions would be available starting this Monday, March 10. Prospective candidates would have until Monday, March 31, to file their petitions. There would be a "challenge period", during which the validity of signatures on nominating petitions could be challenged.
Assuming that there is more than one candidate for at least one of the ANC2F positions, special elections will be held at the next possible ANC2F meeting. Raymond said this would probably be ANC2F's May meeting, currently scheduled for May 14.

Further details may be announced at ANC1B's next meeting general meeting, which will take place tonight, March 6, at 7pm, at the Reeves Center (14th and U Streets NW).
ANC special elections do not draw a great turnout and are often decided by a handful of votes. For example, last year's ANC special election for a open seat in neighboring ANC 2B/Dupont Circle was won by a vote of 34-12.
