Joe Barrios, the ANC Commissioner for Single Member District 5B04 (from Monroe Street NE to Rhode Island Ave NE, and from 13th Street NE to the Metro tracks), has stepped down. He let constituents know via the following email:
Dear ANC 5B04 community,
It is with great regret that I inform you that I have made the difficult decision to step down as ANC 5B04 commissioner, effective Friday September 4th. This decision is due to a change in my employment situation that will require more of my time than I’m able to provide while functioning as commissioner. ANC work is a full-time volunteer commitment, and 5B04’s residents deserve someone who can continue providing the necessary time.
I will continue working on Brookland and 5B04 issues with neighbors as a private citizen, as time and career allows.
It has been my privilege and pleasure serving as ANC 5B04 commissioner for my constituents, and I look forward to continuing to work with you in the future.
Thank you for your service Joe!
