In addition, there will be a Ward 6 Council Election Forum on Tuesday, March 4 at Westminster Presbyterian Church between the two Democratic candidates running - Charles Allen and Darrel Thompson. This forum will be from 7pm to 9pm. Andrew Lightman, Managing Editor of Capital Community News, will moderate. The Primary Election will be held on April 1.

DC United unveiled new renderings of the proposed Buzzard Point stadium at a fan event over the weekend. No news has come out lately about progress with negotiations to build a new stadium for DC United at 2nd and R streets. The DC Council has yet to vote on it although it was expected to do so months ago.
