INTERVIEW – Alexandria Mayor ALLISON SILBERBERG
In Alexandria, a dispute over free speech. At council meetings. (Washington Post) – The Alexandria City Council voted 6 to 1 this week to limit the number of speakers at the start of its monthly Saturday hearings, an attempt to arrest the expanding length of those meetings’ public-comment period. Over the vociferous objections of first-term Mayor Allison Silberberg (D), the council agreed to allow no more than 15 speakers in the “open-mic” period that starts at 9:30 a.m.
