ANC6A-02 special election set for February 11, 7 pm

ANC6A-02 will hold a special election to fill the seat of recently resigned Commissioner and Commission Chair Joe Fengler at the regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, February 11, 2009, at 7pm.

ANC Economic Development and Zoning Committee Chair Drew Ronneberg and PSA 102 Co-Coordinator Bobby Pittman are both running. Ronnenberg has been the lead in running the neighborhood negotiations with coming H Street Connection mixed use redevelopment, while Pittman and Joe Englert recently helped coordinate with a reimburseable detail between MPD and businesses along the entertainment district end of H St.

The ANC6A-02 district runs along the south side of H Street from 8th Street out to 13th Street with E Street as the southern border.


  1. Didn't Pittman try to block the H Street festival this year? That's sure to make him popular...

  2. Some history on Pittman here suggests he might not be the most popular candidate http://frozentropics.blogspot.com/2009/09/festival-color-2-notes.html

  3. Search for Bobby Pittman in the Washington City Paper - he was an ANC commish in NW at some point and was so bad he got voted out of office. Then he refused to turn the keys over to his successor.

  4. The City Paper covered the standoff in the ANC office when Pittman refused to relinquish his seat after being voted out of office in 1997.
    The cops were called. Second article in Loose Lips.

    Last year, the City Paper named ANC6a the Best ANC in the City. Is Bobby Pittman going to help the ANC, NE, or H Street?

  5. Just Say NO to Pittman!January 5, 2010 at 4:21 PM

    Is this the kind of guy you want to be in charge of our neighborhood? Over the summer at a Fengler sponsored community meeting on parking, Pittman told me that because I had only lived in the neighborhood for 2 years that I was "too new" to be allowed an oppinion. That's not democracy. That's not how the ANC should be run. Drew, please post information about how we can help you to beat Pittman.

  6. Pittman is trying to take credit for the reimbursable details, but they were the work of Joe Englert.
    Under the ABRA program, they can only be requested and implemented by those who hold ABRA licenses. The cost is split between the license holders and ABRA.
    Pittman had no part in it.

    Pittman has no record of positive contributions to the community, and no one should be fooled by his misrepresentations.
    His election to the ANC would be a serious problem to the ANC, H Street, and the entire community.
