According to the unofficial results of yesterday’s election, Jackie Blumenthal held onto her Advisory Neighborhood Commission seat, winning 236 votes to challenger Alev Akbulut’s 40. (There were six write-in votes.) The neighborhood’s other ANC races were uncontested, and the new ANC will consist of Blumenthal, fellow incumbents Howie Kreitzman and Brian Cohen, Glover Park Citizens’ Association secretary Mark Stevens, and Ben Thielen of the Wisconsin Avenue Streetcar Coalition.
Vincent Gray won the mayor’s office by a wide margin citywide, but in Glover Park’s precinct, he only narrowly beat “WRITE IN,” 609 to 593. The names on write-in ballots have not yet been reported, but one would expect many of these to go to current mayor Adrian Fenty, whose supporters pushed a write-in effort after he lost to Gray in the primary. (In our precinct, Carlos Allen got 49 votes for mayor; Faith got 26; and Omari Musa got 8.)
