Dear All,
Brooke is not the only candidate with experience working with and for seniors. Patrick Kennedy has many years of experience collaborating with Ward 2 seniors.

While Chair of ANC2A, Patrick helped direct PUD monies to the Foggy Bottom West Village so that it could help expand its role of helping individuals age in place.

Patrick also has served on the board of directors of St Mary’s Court, a HUD senior housing faculty in Foggy Bottom.

He has fought for more senior protections for some of the most vulnerable senior sub-populations, such as LGBTQ seniors, and has been delivering meals to individuals who find themselves shut-in throughout the pandemic through Jose Andres' World Food Kitchen.

Finally, when I served as the ANC2E Chair (I am the current ANC2E02 Commissioner), Patrick and I worked together to hold the first Ward 2 Town Hall on the Dockless Bike Share Program. Patrick is a leading advocate for pedestrian safety. He understands that Georgetown has a different walkway infrastructure then other parts of Ward 2. Patrick’s Ward 2 experience is invaluable.

Thank you,
Joe Gibbons
