ANC6A Chair Joe Fengler resigning as he moves to a new home

Joe Fengler who represents ANC6A-02 (Sherwood Recreation area south of H Street) and is the Chair of ANC6A just announced his resignation as Commissioner. Fengler has been an extremely active and forward thinking for his single member district and for the Commission as a whole and his resignation represents a loss for the neighborhood. It will no doubt require the work of many to attempt fill his shoes. His message to the community, including a call to service, follows.

My wife and I (and our dog Missy) purchased a home in the Lincoln Park community - just a mile to the south. Accordingly, I have resigned my position as ANC 6A02 Commissioner. It has been an honor to work with many of you over the last seven years to make our community a better place to live and work. If there is one thing I can leave with you, it would be to volunteer two hours a month to serve on an ANC 6A committee. Many of the accomplishments attributed to ANC 6A are a direct result of residents taking the time to get involved and provide insight on zoning, liquor license, and public safety issues. It is my firm belief that an ANC will only be as good as the volunteers that donate their time to make great things happen. I will be attending the ANC 6A meeting on January 14 to say my last goodbye (7pm at Miner Elementary School located at the 600 block of 15th Street, NE ). If you have a chance to attend so I can say farewell in person that would be great -- and you can volunteer for a committee!

Holiday Regards, Joe Fengler
