Should Arlington Change its Government Structure?

Wednesday, September 14, 2022

 

The basic structure of the five-member Arlington County Board and School Board, all elected at-large, has gone largely unchanged since their inception in 1930, when Arlington's population hovered at 35,000 people.

 

As the County's increasingly diverse residents approach 240,000, is it time to expand the size of these bodies, elect them by district, or implement ranked choice voting?

 

The Arlington County Civic Federation's Task Force in Government and Election Reform (TiGER) has been considering these questions. Members of the task force will join us to discuss the pros, cons, and open questions about these and other new ideas.

 

Panelists

 

Allan Gajadhar, TiGER Chair, Immediate Past President, Arlington County Civic Federation

Tannia Talento, Former Arlington School Board Chair, Community Leader & Advocate
