ANC 6B Elects New Officers

If the ANC 6B election had gone any smoother, it would have required a butter knife.  All offices received only one nomination, all nominees were elected unanimously and two of the four new members were chosen as officers.

Brian Flahaven will serve as commission chair, with Ivan Frishberg continuing as vice chair. Phillip Peisch, a newly-elected commissioner who came prepared with his laptop, was chosen as secretary.  Brian Pate, who has served in various positions for ANC 6B, now becomes treasurer.
