The Montgomery County Council building.

The Montgomery County Council building.

Embattled Prince George’s County Public Schools CEO Kevin Maxwell announced this week that he is stepping down after months of controversies. We speak to two Board of Education members about his tenure and the school system moving forward. Then we take a look at a less-than-positive report on the economic outlook for Montgomery County and talk about a proposal to use county funds for legal costs of immigrants facing deportation.

Sorting political fact from fiction, and having fun while we’re at it. Join us for our weekly review of the politics, policies, and personalities of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
