Today, Councilmember Tommy Wells extended his condolences to the friends and family of DC ANC-6D Commissioner Ron McBee, who recently passed away.
“My deepest sympathies and condolences go out to the family and friends of Ron McBee. Ron McBee was so much more than a community leader serving on the ANC. He was a friend to us all. With a quick laugh and a sincere interest in our well-being, he enriched our lives. While Ron championed issues to improve the lives of his constituents, many living in public housing, he also found time to mentor youth needing a father figure in his neighborhood.
“The staff in my office loved Ron, especially our community outreach coordinator Naomi Mitchell. I often told them we needed to give Ron his own office, as he spent so much time at City Hall working on behalf of his constituents. Ron, working with Ms. Mitchell, spent countless hours planning activities and coordinating resources to assure the seniors in Southwest were engaged and supported.
“Words will not suffice to express the full measure of our grief over this loss. Ron McBee, a tireless worker for our city, made all of us better for the time he was here.”

Councilmember Wells’ office will send out updated information as it becomes available regarding the services for Commissioner McBee, which will be held at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 400 I St SW.
“Ron leaves a rich legacy that proves how the service of one man can make an extraordinary difference in the lives of many. He will be greatly missed,” said ANC-6D Chairman Andy Litsky.
