In our 2022 “Meet the Candidate” series, we’re getting to know the candidates for ANC 3F, and the redrawn boundaries of the single member districts they will represent for the next two years, starting in January.
Teri Huet is running for ANC 3F02, which includes Forest Hills Park and Playground, and Capital Memorial Church. The SMD’s residents live in four large apartment buildings and single-family detached houses.
Here is Teri Huet’s statement:We live in a neighborhood brimming with neighbors who greet one another, as we move about to work, shopping, taking our kids to school and activities and enjoying our many and diverse restaurants offering delicious delights, along with Farmer’s Markets, and a dynamic university (the University of the District of Columbia (UDC)).
UDC offers many free and low to reasonably costs academic programs, work force development and certification programs, along with middle school and high school Bridge Programs.
As ANC commissioner, I will work with the community and local institutions to bring neighbors together, to learn what offers are available—often offered with little to no fanfare. Information is knowledge and opportunity enables self and community growth.
I will be dedicated to understanding diverse community perspectives, creating spaces for all residents for vibrant dialogue and creative solutions. I want to serve this neighborhood by advocating our local interests and making lasting progress in our community.
I’m focused on:
- Fair and affordable housing – I am on a local grass roots Housing and Neighborhoods committee.
- Safe streets – I am on the Side Walks and Streets Committee. As an avid walker and as one who enjoys the history and beautify of Soap Stone, enjoy what Rock Creek Park has to offer each of us. And, a supporter of DCPS’s Bike to School program, it is my intent to develop to bike school program focused on our children. And, question the validity and feasible of the proposed Connecticut Avenue Bike lane project, for it lacks the interests of the greater community and overall safety of seniors, handicapped residents—I am against this concept. Focus on children, develop safe passage ways for children to reach their school’s and homes—this is vital.
- Community Development (to include but not limited to housing), Education and Policy are my skill sets.
