Khalid Pitts: the 9:30 Club candidate
10 candidates on what they'd do as a councilmember. Spoiler: It gets testy!
Has the Statehood Green Party's sort-of revival gone so far that it's started producing overenthusiastic supporters? LL has to think so, after hearing from a Statehood Green organizer who says the party isn't behind a spree of political sticker mischief in the D.C. Council at-large race.
