Clement Hoping for Anti-MM Boost — “In what is shaping up potentially to be her most successful run for elected office over many, many tries, Audrey Clement is attempting to cast this year’s Arlington County Board race as a simple up-or-down vote on the county government’s proposed Missing Middle housing-cum-zoning changes. ‘Sources I’ve heard within the Democratic Party are concerned about Democrat Matt de Ferranti’s chances of re-election, because of a groundswell of opposition to Missing Middle,” Clement said in a recent statement.” [Sun Gazette]

Drug Takeback Day Approaches — “The Drug Enforcement Administration’s fall National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day will be held on Saturday, October 29. The Arlington County Police Department is encouraging community members to take this opportunity to clear their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs and safely dispose of them in one of Arlington’s four permanent drug take-back boxes. This disposal service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.” [Arlington County]

Graphic Novel Workshop This Week — “For this 4-part workshop series, we invite local artists to share their knowledge on the creative process when creating comics. The first session will be hosted by Evan Keeling who will discuss his comic work and provide a hands on workshop for participants who want to write and storyboard their own sequential stories. This workshop is part of a 4-part graphic novel series. Each event builds on the previous events but can be attended as a stand-alone event as well.” [Arlington Public Library]

Local Man Pleads to Election Crime — “Two right-wing conspiracy theorists who placed thousands of robocalls with false information to largely minority and Democratic voters in Cleveland in the months before the November 2020 election pleaded guilty on Monday to a felony charge. Jacob Wohl, 24, of Irvine, California, and Jack Burkman, 56, of Arlington, Virginia, face a maximum of a year in prison after they pleaded guilty to a fifth-degree felony charge of telecommunications fraud.” []
