Video: Alexandria Mayoral Debate Between Allison Silberberg and Justin Wilson

I didn’t have time to watch all of this Alexandria Mayoral debate, sponsored by the Del Ray Business Association, but I skimmed through it and thought that both candidates – Mayor Allison Silberberg and Vice Mayor Justin Wilson – did a good job. I’m curious what people’s arguments for either Wilson or Silberberg might be, as I haven’t decided who (if anyone) to support in this race.

UPDATE Thursday afternoon: I’ve now watched the entire thing and found some interesting discussion/debate on a number of areas, including dedicated funding (or not), how to encourage affordable housing, whether a “meals tax” is the right way to go, how to cut down on pedestrian fatalities, whether the Metro funding bill was a good deal for Alexandria or not, etc.
