Committee to Re-elect Commissioner Troy Donte' Prestwood for ANC Commissioner 8A04
When I ran for Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner four years ago, I made a commitment to contribute my talents, time and treasury to the community we love. Working together with you and many of our neighbors, we improved our roads, alleys, sidewalks, and gutters. We expanded community resources to seniors and our youth as well as connected vulnerable residents to job training, educational opportunities, food, and housing. We fought for increased investments in crime fighting, community policing, public education and housing for residents at all income levels. We cleaned streets and green spaces, added new liter cans, and tackled illegal dumping. We installed new traffic-calming devices, addressed residential parking concerns, and helped neighbors resolve disputes. And we secured funding for a new recreation center that will be tailor-made for Anacostia.
We have a lot to proud of. But I know we still have a way to go before we can truly claim victory. Public safety continues to rock our community; too many residents are forced to stretch their budgets to pay rising housing cost; and some of the new development headed our way threatens to overtake our community.
That’s why in my next term, I will continue work begun to tackle crime by reinvigorating neighborhood watch programs like the Orange Hats patrols and help residents overcome the fear of speaking up. I will continue working with residents who want security cameras installed at no cost. I will continue to fight for quality jobs and careers for residents. I will continue fighting to Improve our infrastructure and transportation network. And I will continue fighting for quality housing for residents at all income levels.
I can’t do it this alone. I will need your help. That’s why once again I’m asking for your vote on November 6. I’m ready to continue the work we’ve started as we put our neighborhood first.
