ANC1B Elects James Turner Chair, Solicits Applications for Committee Chairs

James Turner, Commissioner for district 08 of Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 1B/U Street, was re-elected chair of the ANC at its first meeting of the year on January 8. Turner reported in an email that the following Commissioners were selected at the same meeting as officers of the ANC:

  • Vice-Chair: Robb Hudson (district 11)
  • Treasurer: Nick Ferreyros (05)
  • Secretary: Jessica Laura Smith (07)
Hudson, Ferreyros, and Smith are all first-term Commissioners.

Commissioners Hudson and Ferreyros tweeted yesterday (January 12) that ANC1B is accepting applications for the position of ANC committee chairs through January 26. People interested were invited to send Hudson or Ferreyros a message, or indicate their interest via the ANC's web site.

In 2014, ANC1B had five standing committees -- ABC (liquor licenses), Design Review, Grants, Public Safety, and Transportation. The committee chair positions are unpaid, just like the position of Commissioner itself.
