(5 pm. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

cross-posted from Sum of Change

Last week, we attended a candidate forum for candidates in the special election for Washington, DC’s At-Large City Council. We were hosted by DC for Democracy, Greater Greater Washington, and the DC Environmental Network.┬áThis event was streamed live and you can watch the entire recording of that livefeed here. Below, you will find videos broken out by question. We have posted every question that was asked, in the order it was asked. Enjoy!
