Impact of the ANC Recall on the Trinidad Neighborhood

On August 6, 2015 we posted about the ANC Recall Process. As petitions are being circulated it is important that Trinidad residents understand the impact the recall will have on the Trinidad neighborhood.

Currently Trinidad has 3 Single Member District Commissioners. The petitions being circulated will cause vacancies. The recall will disproportionally impact our neighborhood.

3,470 registered voters may lose representation. Trinidad currently has 3 votes on the 7 member Advisory Neighborhood Commission 5D, but the recall will leave us with only 1 vote.

As many of you know there are multiple development efforts, liquor license protests, zoning matters, and community engagement projects underway.

TNA does not have a position on the merits of the petitions, but we want all in the Trinidad neighborhood to think long and hard about the impact of the recall on our neighborhood.

Lastly, we would like to remind our neighbors that all ANC Single Member District Commissioners are up for reelection in 2016. As always we encourage competitive races at the ANC level, and challenging the incumbents at this time does not risk a loss in representation.
