ARLnow Weekend Discussion

Polling place on Nov. 3, 2015

The overall party affiliation of those on the Arlington County Board might not be changing on Jan. 1, but that doesn’t mean the status quo from a policymaking perspective.

Democrats Katie Cristol and Christian Dorsey will bring a fresh perspective to the Board, following their lopsided victory in Tuesday’s election.

In a way, it’s back to normal for Arlington’s usual pattern of electing Democrats to local office, after John Vihstadt’s election last year flipped the script. But Cristol and Dorsey are not exactly the establishment Arlington Democrats of old, pledging to bring more fiscal responsibility, economic development and an emphasis on innovation to county government

Feel free to discuss the election or any other topic of local interest, in the comments.
