We meet Dionne Reeder, a business owner running for D.C. Council, and the new chair of Virginia's Republican Party, Jack Wilson.
D.C., Maryland and Virginia don’t often speak with one voice–certainly not about Metro, Amazon, or where the FBI should put its headquarters. We don’t even have a great way to refer to the greater D.C. area. Can it get much worse than “the DMV”? Is a lack of collaboration or regional identity holding us back, or does healthy competition raise the bar higher for everyone? We discuss the challenges of regional cooperation and what it takes to get different jurisdictions on the same page.
