Jennie Nevin, candidate for district 02 of Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 1B/U Street, said in an email yesterday that she will be dropping out of the race for personal reasons. Nevin said she submitted her paperwork confirmed her withdrawal to DC election authorities this week.
This means that the only other candidate on the ballot, Ellen Nedrow Sullivan, will almost certainly be elected. See a written interview by SALM with Sullivan here.
District 02 contains some of the fastest-developing territory in the U Street NW
corridor. It extends from 12th Street in the west to 8th Street in the
east. The southern border is S Street. The northern border is a jagged
line, mostly defined by Florida Avenue. See bottom center of the map at
Nevin's withdrawal means there is now only one candidate running in eight 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.
Election Day is Tuesday, November 4, but early voting centers
in nine neighborhood areas opened on
October 25. There is also early voting downtown at Judiciary Square.
