On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
A razor thin race has Montgomery County, Md. residents wondering just who their next County Executive will be. D.C. Councilmember Elissa Silverman faces opposition in her re-election campaign despite winning in the primary. The search is on for a new D.C. Public Schools Chancellor more than four months after the previous one stepped down. All of that plus two people who took on incumbents to win Democratic Party nominations as Montgomery County and Alexandria City councilmembers.
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.
