Hi, my name is James Tandaric and I am running for ANC 3F05 Commissioner.

Meet James

Commissioner James Tandaric is a first term ANC Commissioner representing ANC 3F07, located in Van Ness/Forest Hills. With the redistricting done in 2022, James is running for re-election for ANC 3F05 in the November 2022 election. Originally from Chicago, James has called DC home for 7 years and Van Ness for 3 years.

During his time in the ANC, he formed and chaired the Schools & Universities Committee, met with numerous city agencies to address issues with Crime and Safety in the area, and advocated for affordable housing and protected bike lanes. He hopes to continue supporting the Van Ness neighborhood by running for a second term as ANC Commissioner.

What is an ANC?
