About Pranav

My name is Pranav Nanda and I am running for the Advisory Neighborhood Commission (6C04). I am a second generation Indian-American and grew up in a small town on the seacoast of New Hampshire with my parents and two sisters. Throughout my life, I have been dedicated to working to improve my local community through volunteer work, community activism, and political involvement.

Whether it was on the soccer field, in the classroom, or in different areas of the world, I have always found purpose in making a difference in the lives of the people I interact with. And these values are what will lead me in my work if I am elected to represent you as your ANC commissioner.

Issues

Working for our Neighbors

The Advisory Neighborhood Council was established to help provide DC residents with the ability to have a greater say in matters that impact them, their families, and their neighborhoods. And that is exactly what it should be for.

Public Safety

Public Safety is one of the most critical issues in DC. Everyone deserves to feel safe in their neighborhood and community. And while ANC 6C is fortunate to not experience as high of a rate of violence and crime as some other parts of the city, it is still a major concern for many of our community members.

Education

As a former teacher, I know first hand about how important the education system is to the community. And ANC 6C is lucky to have some great neighborhood schools. But the reality is that the DC education system has a long way to go to ensure that all students are able to access an excellent education.

Homeless Encampments

I am sure that by this point, everyone in DC has heard the message “Stay At Home” in order to keep yourself and your community safe. Unfortunately, this is not possible for so many of our neighbors who are facing homelessness. As everyone knows, this is not a recent issue that was brought about by COVID-19, but instead a systemic issue in Washington DC and within ANC 6C.
