Morning Poll: Do You Work for the Government?

Undoubtedly, there are lots of people in the area, and in Arlington in particular, who work for or around the government. And employment estimates bear that out. But does that really tell the full story?

Putting aside whether we’re collectively boring, let’s find out just how many of us are directly connected to the government.
