No GOP Candidates Yet — “The clock continues to tick and the calendar pages keep turning, but as yet, the Arlington County Republican Committee remains 0-for-13 when it comes to recruiting candidates for the November ballot. Hope, however, springs eternal. ‘If you’re interested in running . . . I encourage you to do so,’ new party chair Matthew Hurtt said at the April 24 meeting of the GOP’s rank-and-file.” [Gazette Leader]

Video: Low-Flying Helicopter — A reader spotted a low-flying helicopter over the Four Mile Run Trail yesterday morning. It appeared to be inspecting the high voltage power lines. [Twitter]

GGWash Candidate Questionnaires — “The two new [Arlington County Board] members could have a big say in how the new zoning goes forward (or if, depending on how the lawsuit goes)… That’s why we reached out to the six candidates and sent them a questionnaire. We’re sharing the responses we received here as a service to the public.” [Greater Greater Washington]
