Excerpt from Washington Jewish Week - May 2015
Columbia Pike resident Katie Cristol, 30, is glad to live in a place that matches her progressive values. She wants to ensure that Arlington’s reputation for diversity and sustainability continues. The community advocate and education policy consultant is running for Arlington County Board to bring a fresh perspective to the 26-square-mile urban county across the Potomac River from Washington.
