On Wednesday evening, the Arlington County Board passed Expanded Housing Options (EHO), a result of the Missing Middle Housing study. After the adjournment of the meeting, Democratic County Board Candidate Maureen Coffey said, “I’m glad that our current County Board members have added another tool to our housing toolbox. There are a number of moral and economic reasons why this change was imperative for Arlington.”
On Thursday, the DC, Maryland, and Virginia-based local for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) has endorsed Maureen Coffey for the Arlington County Board. Coffey is seeking the Democratic nomination for one of two open Arlington County Board seats in 2023.
