ANC 5B04 Commissioner Carolyn Steptoe needs no introduction to our regular readers. Here is one of the latest of multiple stories we covered about Ms. Steptoe and our ongoing neighborhood saga regarding Freedom of Information Act compliance and ANC 5B. We learned tonight that Steptoe is moving on and vacating her seat as ANC Commissioner.
Commissioner Steptoe just shared the following message via email.
Dear 5B04 Community —
In keeping with my commitment to the 5B04 community, I wish to pass along this information.After 16 blessed years in my Lawrence Street (Brookland) home – a lovely environment I purchased as a single, young professional – I have decided to sell my home. I will remain in my D.C. hometown, but will live in upper, upper N.W. (16th Street – the inimitable “Gold Coast.” ) Like many Washingtonians, yes, I do sing The Jefferson’s theme song in association w/the prospect of living on The Gold Coast… lol!Anyway, my new home will be 2 blocks from Walter Reed. It is also but a few blocks from Rock Creek Park and Silver Spring. As most know, the Gold Coast is a very quiet, tree-lined and long-standing residential neighborhood.I anticipate finalizing (prayerfully) all my relocation matters soon; several weeks anyway. Once everything is finalized, I shall then relinquish my 5B04 SMD commissioner seat since, at that point, I shall neither be a 5B04 resident nor a resident of Ward 5.I wanted to share this with you so you may know, until my formal transition out of our 5B04 community, you may contact me anytime should you need assistance. Until such time, I shall continue to be in the 5B04 community and work as the elected 5B04 commissioner. Although ANC 5B is on summer break, I can be reached on 202-321-3860. You may also send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Please know it remains my honor to serve my community and enjoy my neighbors. Blessings and happy summer to all!Very kind regards,Commissioner Carolyn C.
