I live in a mixed-income community, so the most important issue is subjective. For some, it’s gun violence. For others, tenant issues. For many, inclusivity. As ANC, it is my duty to be a liaison between my neighbors and the District agencies responsible for addressing their needs. I also believe in empowerment; I want my neighbors to understand government operations, so they can advocate for themselves.
Social media is amazing for engagement and I intend on using that as my main source. However, many of my neighbors (e.g. older adults) are not on popular platforms like Twitter and Instagram. My goal is to identify individuals who do not use social media and offer periodic newsletters for distribution in-person and by email.
