It’s Friday, it’s pretty nice outside, it’s dog-walking time.
It’s also almost election time. Virginia’s primary elections are Tuesday, June 11 and Arlington has several candidates on the ballot this year. The race for commonwealth’s attorney has grown especially heated in recent weeks, raking in some serious campaign contributions and also sparking discussions about long-standing issues like how defense attorneys access criminal case documents.
For those looking for weekend activities, there’s a bevy of Pride-themed events, a discussion about the impacts of Amazon in local communities, and a “Rock-n-Recycle” festival where you can get a look for yourself at the composting process yours truly profiled.
