ANC 6B on The Death of Charnice Milton


Whereas Charnice Milton was a life-long Washingtonian who graduated from Bishop McNamara High School, Ball State University, and Syracuse University.

Whereas Charnice Milton was a writer for Capital Community News, the publisher of Hill Rag and in this capacity, frequently wrote articles about matters before 6B Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners.

Whereas Charnice Milton also wrote articles about daily life on Capitol Hill ranging from tree box maintenance, the Southeast Boulevard project, to the Anacostia river.

Whereas Charnice Milton's stories were well written and provided Capitol Hill residents with critical information regarding local agency decisions.

Whereas Charnice Milton died tragically on May 27, 2015 after attending an Eastern Market Community Advisory Committee (EMCAC) meeting.

Whereas Charnice Milton's last story about the EMCAC meeting, published on May 30, 2015, three days after her death, reminds all Capitol Hill residents about her dedication to our neighborhood and the residents who live here.

Therefore be it resolved that Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners representing ANC6B express their condolences to the family of Charnice Milton upon her untimely death.

Further, be it resolved that ANC6B Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners will invoke a moment of silence at the June 9, 2015 meeting in memory of Charnice Milton.  Ms. Milton was a writer, leader, and role-model whose successes will be long remembered.
