Video: Arlington Dems County Board Debate (6/1/16)


With the Democratic primary for Arlington County Board less than two weeks away, here’s video from last night’s rather sedate, kind of boring to be blunt, Arlington County Democratic Committee (ACDC) debate between Libby Garvey and Erik Gutshall. I’m mostly just presenting this for the record, because honestly, I can’t think of anything newsworthy…
