Hi, I’m Dan Wittels, and I’m running for the newly created ANC 1B12 seat this November.
I’ve lived in the U Street corridor area for over 15 years, and have seen firsthand both the benefits and drawbacks of the explosive growth we’ve experienced. The neighborhood is under ever-increasing pressure as an evening entertainment center and a hub for new development.
If you’re like me, you don’t we to see the neighborhood lose the unique character it has had for over a century. Smart growth is the only answer to help us maintain our identity, and to help us make our streets safer. Developers and residents must work together to ensure we make this neighborhood better, and not just bigger.
I will work to put the needs of residents first.
