ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

(Updated 2/7) Busy week at the intersection of state and local politics.

Yesterday, Gov. Glenn Youngkin visited an Alexandria Safeway for a roundtable discussion only to get heckled for not wearing a mask indoors. There’s even a shirt referencing the incident being produced as a fundraiser. Meanwhile, members of Youngkin’s administration made better headway in meeting with state and federal leaders to discuss increased infrastructure funding for a local bridge project.

Meanwhile, Alexandria has its own local problems. The city is issuing $187,673 in refunds after it found a red camera light on Duke Street was not adhering to state requirements. The city is also facing some financial problems from hotel tax revenue drying up. Alexandria City Public Schools are also grappling with a recruiting shortage and is working to boost relationships with historically black colleges and universities in an effort to bring in new teachers.
