With the April 1st DC Council and mayoral primary just a few weeks away, let’s not rely only on the Washington Post for our news about our candidates.
Greater Greater Washington and its companion blog, Greater Greater Education, is posting video interviews with candidates for mayor and in the contested Council races. The topics they’re covering are housing, transportation and education.And with education a hot topic in the race for mayor, there’s another perspective to take into consideration: That of the students. The Wilson High School Beacon conducted email interviews with some candidates, and scoured the campaign websites of others for hints of their positions. We’ve been given permission to republish the results from the January 31st issue of The Beacon. We'd also encourage you to subscribe. This student newspaper covers all of its operating costs with donations and advertising.
