ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

Just as the school resource officer debate started to cool down, things have started heating up between the City Council local first responder unions and city leadership over pay issues.

At the same time, city officials are entering the final stretch before election day on Tuesday, Nov. 2., which among other statewide elections will see candidates competing for the City Council, mayoral and School Board seats in Alexandria.

On the bright side, the local woman who was looking for help to pay for surgery earlier this week met her GoFundMe goal.
