Today on the Kojo Nnamdi show, Marion Barry (Ward 8, Mayor for Life) will be defending his elected position against those who would seek to dethrone the king. The show description reads thus:
The presidential campaign may get all the attention, but Washington, D.C. is also preparing for a full slate of local primaries on September 9. And nowhere has that election generated as much candidate interest than in Ward 8, where a crowded field is challenging an influential incumbent. We’ll meet the candidates and talk with them about the most pressing issues facing their community.
Go get’em Marion! You can listen in live via Windows Media Player or Real Player or iTunes streaming through WAMU’s live streaming.
