I had the opportunity to interview Takoma Park Councilwoman Kate Stewart recently. What drew me to this particular interview was that Ms. Stewart entered the political arena quite recently. She was elected in April 2014 to fill the seat on the Takoma Park City Council left vacant as a result of the passing of Councilwoman Kay Daniels Cohen.

I was not disappointed.
