Former D.C. Mayor Anthony Williams

The District is gearing up for citywide elections next year, but it’s unclear how just how much of the city will be able to truly participate. Anthony Williams, the city’s former mayor and a Democrat himself, is among those sounding the alarm about the consequences of urban political systems that put power exclusively in the hands of one party. He joins us to explore what one-party rule has meant for D.C. and the issues where the city could benefit from more ideological diversity and participation.
