It was a slow, holiday-shortened week in Arlington that saw the calendar turn to the neatly symmetrical year of 2020.
(Pro tip: there’s no need to comment with “slow news week?” on a week that’s obviously a slow news week.)
All signs point to the 2020s being the Roaring ’20s for Arlington, with Amazon continuing to hire for HQ2 at a fast clip and the Amazon glow driving significant interest in local office space. Economic growth, however, may lead to higher housing prices and other challenges — and County Board members are pledging to tackle those issues head-on in 2020.
With Arlington’s location and new-found prestige helping the county to sell itself, local leaders made the interesting choice last month to bring on a new head of economic development, Telly Tucker, whose bonafides are mostly around building regional partnerships and helping small businesses, not attracting huge new employers. Tucker is set to get to work mid-month.

Need help dealing with anxiety, depression or stress?
If you’re struggling to cope with anxiety, depression or stress, our virtual psychotherapy services can help. We offer a confidential and convenient service that’s tailored to your needs.
In our practice, cognitive behavioral therapy (or CBT) is an important tool we use to provide effective relief for those facing anxiety and depression. We believe that cognitive change can be used to improve behaviors and emotions, thus allowing you to achieve mental wellness. By understanding the cognitive distortions that lead to negative thought patterns, we are able to create interventions tailored to each of our clients. This empowering approach can help you gain control of how your own thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors impact your experience. With CBT, our service provides an effective treatment that can bring long-term change and mental stability.
