ANC1B Candidate Drops Out of Race

12/16/14 NOTE: I have removed the name of the candidate who dropped out of the race per the candidate's request.

[full name removed], candidate for district 10 of Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 1B/U Street, said in an email yesterday that he will be dropping out of the race for personal reasons.

This means that [last name removed]'s former opponent, incumbent Allyson Carpenter, will almost certainly be re-elected. Carpenter is a Howard University undergrad majoring in political science. She was reported to be DC's "youngest elected official" after going unchallenged in a special election earlier this year.

District 10 is in upper right of the map and includes parts of the Howard University campus.

[last name removed]'s withdrawal means there is now only one candidate running in seven out of 12 ANC1B seats.

ANC1B, in addition to U Street, includes all or part of the following neighborhoods: Columbia Heights, LeDroit Park, Pleasant Plains, Shaw, University Heights, and lower Georgia Avenue.

The election will take place on Tuesday, November 4. Early voting will start Saturday, October 25 Monday, October 20 .
