Maryland Senator Ben Cardin joins us to talk about the youth movement against gun violence, Russian sanctions, and more. D.C. Councilmember Mary Cheh shares her thoughts on relief for high water bills and news that D.C. Public Schools is taking over an all girls charter school.
The director of D.C.’s Department of General Services resigned recently, and two other staffers were reportedly forced out. WAMU 88.5 reporter Patrick Madden dug deeper into the events that prompted the turnover, pointing to sources who believe it’s because two major construction contracts were not awarded to firms close to the mayor. The city administrator disputes this, saying the issue was that local companies weren’t given enough of a preference in the process. We speak to Madden as well as the D.C. city administrator about the issues.
