The email below went out late last night. Shelton is currently under investigation for stealing near $30,000.00 in public ANC funds. He formerly served as Chair of the Commission, but he resigned that position effective July 5th. As I mentioned last night, ANC 5B has a public meeting tomorrow night. This will be its first public meeting since the scandal broke.

Subject: ANC 5B01 Resignation
Effective Thursday, August 30, 2011, I, William C. Shelton resign as the Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner 5B01. Representing and serving the constituents of Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner 5B01 for the past ten years has been enjoyable, insightful, and gratifying. My fellow neighbors from Saratoga Avenue, Montana Avenue, Douglas Street, Evarts Street, 18th Street, and Franklin Street have worked hard with me to accomplish many goals and objectives. Although I am resigning as the Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner, I will continue to live and work hard to insure ANC 5B01 remains a beacon of Ward 5. I look forward to my continued service to residents of ANC 5B01, Ward 5, and the District of Columbia.
William C. Shelton
