As Election Day approaches in the Maryland, a candidate for Montgomery County Executive and one for Governor of Maryland join us for the Politics Hour.
Only 42 percent of D.C. Public Schools’ class of 2018 is on track to graduate this spring. Virginia debates the balance of First Amendment rights and public safety at Confederate monument rallies. And, in Maryland, some lawmakers are questioning the $3 billion in tax credits and exemptions Governor Hogan is using to lure Amazon to the state. We also talk to Robin Ficker, Republican candidate for Montgomery County Executive, and Kathleen Matthews, Chair of Maryland’s Democratic Party.
It’s the Politics Hour, our weekly review of the politics, policies, and personalities of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
