New Board Members Elected at the 2012 Annual Meeting:
Winthrop Brown, Springland Lane
Win Brown is a long-time resident of the Cleveland Park area, having moved here in 1975. He and his wife Sarah raised three daughters in the neighborhood, all of whom attended the Cathedral schools. For the past 20 years they have lived on Springland Lane, to which they moved from Quebec Street. Win has had a longstanding interest in architecture, which may have inspired his daughter Helen who is now an architect. Win is a past chair of the boards of both the National Child Research Center and Beauvoir School.
Win practices banking law at the Washington office of Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy LLP. He is also an adjunct professor at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
Judy Levin, The Broadmoor, Connecticut Avenue
Judy Levin and her husband Peter have owned their apartment at the Broadmoor since 1997. She has been actively involved in the cooperative community there since her arrival, including service on the Board, establishing an exercise facility and organizing exercise classes; reviving an in-house newsletter; organizing the 2008 yard sale to raise proceeds to refresh the front lobby chairs; and hosting a “Chair ” Party to celebrate the reupholstered chairs’ return. Judy continues to be active on the Broadmoor Social Committee.
In 2001, while keeping their Broadmoor apartment, Judy and Peter moved to the downtown capitol area of Albany, NY, where they owned an historic 1849 brownstone. There they dealt with the eccentricities of modernizing the interior of the house while staying within local Historic Preservation restrictions. Judy also became a member and later President of the Hudson/Park Neighborhood Association and on its behalf appeared regularly before the Albany zoning board. For a California girl raised in a ranch house, it was an eye-opening experience and sparked her interest in valued historic structures.
Judy is a consultant dietitian/public health nutritionist and proud grandmother to her Philadelphia-based grandchildren.
PJ McCann, Macomb Street
PJ McCann is from Wisconsin, and came to Washington to work for Sen. Russ Feingold. She moved from Capitol Hill to her current residence on Macomb Street with her husband Edward An, and their two children.
PJ currently works at New Partners providing strategic guidance to private sector, non-profits and political campaigns. Before joining New Partners, PJ owned her own firm. She led the fundraising effort for Barack Obama’s Committee for Change. She was also a key advisor for the ONE Campaign and two congressional campaigns, including Tom Perriello’s, which resulted in one of the biggest upset victories of 2008.
Abigail (Abby) Porter, 35th Street
Abby Porter resides just north of Rosedale with her husband David Kay, an architect, and their 11-year old daughter Emma. She and David have lived together in Cleveland Park since 1998; before that Abby lived in Woodley Park for twelve years. She enjoys living in Cleveland Park, with its beautiful houses and gardens, walkable streets, and tranquil village-in-the-city feel, and looks forward to volunteering her time and skills to help preserve and enhance these characteristics of the neighborhood.
Abby is a scriptwriter, researcher and project coordinator who has worked since 1989 on the multi-faceted and creative aspects of putting together museum exhibition projects – primarily on history, science, and cultural topics. A native of Massachusetts, she has an undergraduate degree in art and design, and a graduate degree in American Studies.
