On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Guest Host: Patrick Madden
Last week, Maryland Gubernatorial candidate and Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz died of a heart attack. This week, his running mate, former Montgomery County Councilmember Valerie Ervin, announced that she is going to run in his place, along with her pick for Lieutenant Governor, Marisol Johnson. We talk to Ervin about her decision to run, her vision for Maryland and her remembrance of Kevin Kamenetz.
Then we turn to Washington, D.C., where a new budget was just passed by the council with several tax hikes. One raised the tax on a pack of cigarettes by two dollars. We speak with Councilmember Vincent Gray, who introduced the cigarette tax hike, about the new changes.
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.
