Every month I get updated on the happenings "around the way" via the monthly Park View News, a newsletter distributed by ANC 1A Commissioner and Chair Kent Boese. Although, I don’t attend the ANC meetings, I know who Kent is because of his newsletter. While you can read up on Kent's record on the ANC website, his blog, or check out his social media feeds to get to know who he is as a local politician, I thought it would be good for neighbors to get to know the guy who’s so very much involved and respected in the Park View neighborhood, and who takes the time to deliver newsletters each month, despite the weather.
And the main takeaways about Boese:
'Don’t underestimate the value of sitting on someone's porch and getting to know them,' he said. 'You learn a lot about your community and a lot about yourself.'
'We want healthy communities, we want inclusive communities,' Kent said. 'Everything you are willing to put into your neighborhood will be repaid. Be respectful. Be kind. And if you are willing to put in the effort, you will be rewarded significantly.'
