The five leading Democratic contenders for D.C. mayor are competing for a difficult job. After a decade of economic growth spurred by the policy changes of two-term retiring Mayor Anthony Williams, the next mayor must balance the need for change against the safety of continuity. The city has made significant strides, yet much work remains. Residents have demanded leadership on a litany of issues, including dilapidated schools, affordable housing, economic development, and public safety. On Sept. 12, District voters will head to the polls for the Democratic primary, which also should determine the general election, given the dearth of registered Republicans and Independents in the city. Among their choices are the son of a Clinton Cabinet member, Williams’ torchbearer, a young dynamo, a self-made CEO, and a CPA turned councilman. Below are links to excerpts from an hourlong discussion each candidate had with Legal Times on a host of issues. The links to the candidates also includes a brief MP3 audio file on a particular topic from their discussions. — Nathan Carlile THE CANDIDATESMichael Brown Managing partner at Alcalde & FayLinda Cropp D.C.
