(L-R) Attorney General Brian Frosh and Councilmember Elissa Silverman

Though it appears that the region will avoid the brunt of Hurricane Florence, flooding is still a concern in Alexandria. The city’s emergency manager, Corey Smedley, joins us to talk about how they’ve been preparing.

Elissa Silverman had a well-funded challenger, S. Kathryn Allen, eying her seat in the D.C. Council, until Allen dropped out of the race after many of her ballot petition signatures were found to be forged. Councilmember Silverman joins us to talk about that and more.

Plus, we speak to Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh about his reelection campaign and how he balances his job as the state’s top lawyer with his leadership among other Democratic Attorney Generals in taking on the Trump administration in federal court.
