Your Voice on the ANC

The ANC is a vital link between residents, business interests, the DC Metropolitan Police Department, city services like sanitation, as well as the many visitors we have here each day. My goal is to represent all the interests in our area, and balance the many competing interests in order to protect and grow this unique neighborhood.

It’s crucial that the ANC be responsive to all those who call this area home, whether by day or night. If elected I promise to work hard so that the ANC and the city works for you.

In the video above, I talk about just a few of the pressing issues that affect us all, but there are many others. Improving sanitation and rodent control, strengthening our ties to the police to improve safety and reduce crime, welcoming new development while protecting the neighborhood’s character, and balancing the needs of residents and our many guests who come for an evening of entertainment. And there are many more as well.

That’s why I hope you’ll take a moment to look over the mailing recently sent to all the registered voters in the ANC 1B12. And more importantly, email me anytime at with your thoughts on what you think the neighborhood needs, and what the ANC can do for you.


I’m Dan And I’m Asking For Your Vote

Hi, I’m Dan Wittels, and I’m running to be your voice on the ANC 1B.

The U Street neighborhood is in constant change. As a resident for more than 15 years in the 14th and U area, I’ve seen a lot of that change. Much of it has been for the good, but not all of it has made our little neighborhood a better place to live. And too often, local residents have felt sidelined in the decision making process.

That’s why I’m running for the newly created ANC 1B12 seat: I want to make sure your concerns and priorities are clearly heard on the ANC board, and across the numerous other local area civic committees.

I’ll be posting a lot more here in the coming days ahead about the many issues facing our neighborhood. I also want to hear your thoughts on what you would like the ANC 1B12 area to look like in the next two, five or ten years. Just send me your thoughts to

Thanks for visiting the site, and I hope to hear from you soon.
