Clara haskell botstein




Hi neighbors!


My name is Clara Haskell Botstein, and I am proud to be your Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner (ANC) for 4C08. 


My goals are to make sure your voices are heard by city government, elevate and solve problems, and work to strengthen our community with a focus on access, equity, and quality of life.


This year, I've been proud to co-organize the inaugural Petworth PorchFest and Petworth Summer Saturdays, and to advocate for a Petworth Main Street.  

For more information about ANC4C and engagement opportunities, visit anc4c.org, which I maintain as part of my Commission Secretary duties.


Petworth has been my home for five years. I love our neighborhood, and I'm passionate about building community, elevating diverse voices and perspectives, and helping local government work effectively for all residents.


I have nearly 15 years of experience in public policy and working with government to effect change, primarily on behalf of public education and youth development programs. As a leader of the Bard Early College, which offers free college programs to public high school students, I was proud to bring our early college model to DC in 2019 through a partnership with DC Public Schools. I have a record of delivering results, including at Bard and as Board Chair of Two Rivers Public Charter School. I am respectful, inclusive, hard-working and solutions-oriented. 

I am an enthusiastic fan of the arts and enjoy outdoor activities, organizing events, and my large orange tabby cat, among other things. I look forward to getting to know and work with you!
