Jon has lived in 1B04 for 5 years, and in Washington, DC for over 7, always looking for ways to better his community in any way possible. He currently works at the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA) where he focuses on major gifts fundraising, helping animals find their forever homes and strengthening the human and animal bond. He also spent 2 years working for Martha’s Table, a local 1B04 nonprofit that has served our community for over 37 years.
During his first term Jon played a major role in advocating for community concerns in large redevelopment projects, liquor licensing, and many other community issues. With this experience under his belt, he’s ready to focus more on community outreach and education to show just how much ANCs can do to help community members have their voice heard during his second term. He will continue to listen to and advocate for his neighbor’s concerns with a fair and balanced perspective.
ANC 1B is one of the busiest areas for redevelopment, and every resident deserves to have a voice in that process. During Jon’s last term, he has always been proactive about connecting residents and developers to engage in productive dialogue around any new development projects in 1B04. While not every single resident can be happy with how these projects turn out, Jon has always made it a priority to hear everyone’s viewpoint and that won’t change in his second term.
Everytime we turn around there seems to be a new bar or restaurant popping up in the neighborhood. This is obviously a huge community benefit, but that doesn’t mean residents shouldn’t have a say in how these establishments operate and fit into our community. Having worked on several ABRA liquor licenses over his first term, Jon will continue to make sure that residents have a say in any new establishments, and will be a fierce advocate for them should any operators behave poorly. We can continue to keep ANC 1B the go to place for new establishments while still holding operators accountable to the community they are a part of.
So many random issues pop up around our neighborhood, and as ANC Commissioner Jon has always done as much as he possibly can to escalate these issues to the right city agencies. As your representative to other city officials, Jon will continue to advocate for your concerns about transportation, public safety, and any other community concerns you may have.
Our community deserves an ANC that works for us. Jon is a great listener with a reputation for being a hard worker who gets things done. From holding town halls and coffee meet ups, to simply attending community events, Jon has prioritized meeting his constituents where they are from day 1. During his second term, Jon will continue to hear all viewpoints, even those that differ from his own.

What is an anc?
The Advisory Neighborhood Commissions consider a wide range of policies and programs affecting their neighborhoods, including traffic, parking, recreation, street improvements, liquor licenses, zoning, economic development, police protection, sanitation and trash collection, and the District's annual budget.
In each of these areas, the intent of the ANC legislation is to ensure input from an advisory board that is made up of the residents of the neighborhoods that are directly affected by government action. The ANCs are the body of government with the closest official ties to the people in a neighborhood.
The ANCs present their positions and recommendations on issues to various District government agencies, the Executive Branch, and the Council. They also present testimony to independent agencies, boards, and commissions, usually under the rules of procedure specific to those entities. By law, the ANCs may also present their positions to Federal agencies.
ANCs, agency officials, and the general public are now able to search for advice letters written by the Office of the Attorney General on ANC issues.
