It’s Friday and that means it’s time to turn your attention away from primary politics and focus on the weekend ahead.
On Tuesday, incumbent prosecutor Theo Stamos lost her bid for re-election to challenger Parisa Dehghani-Tafti in an upset that some experts say is unprecedented in Arlington. And on the national election stage, presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg visited Arlington for a private fundraising event.
Now that that’s over, it’s time for the Columbia Pike Blues Festival and the Arlington County Board’s next meeting this Saturday about a development some hope will help a historic cemetery.
Here are a few other stories from this week you might have missed during the election whirlwind:
