Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 6B Commissioner Aimee Grace (6B07) will resign in the next few months, she announced Wednesday.
Grace said the decision was compelled by a change in her husband’s employment, effective March 2018, but also by their mutual decision to return home to Hawaii to be near to their aging parents.
“We will of course remain invested in the community with our many friendships and also keeping our home here. I am also committed to making sure that our Potomac Ave SE triangle parks project, in particular, finishes strong,” Grace said in a statement.
“This has been a very difficult decision and I’m so sorry to need to leave my term early.”
Grace said she is aware of at least two people interested in serving out the remainder of the 2018 term as commissioner for ANC 6B07, and encourages all interested parties to contact her for information about how to proceed with either an election (if multiple parties are interested) or in assuming the position (if only one individual applies).
Grace can be reached via email at 6B07@anc.dc.gov.
Grace thanks her constituents in ANC 6B and, in particular, in her Single Member District for being such a wonderful community.
“It has been a great honor serving as your ANC commissioner,” she said, “and I will continue to enjoy serving in this role until we leave.”
