November was one of busiest months I've had yet as editor of Fairfax City Patch.

Much of the chaos was thanks to one of the most hotly-contested elections the commonwealth of Virginia has seen in years (so I'm told).

But, there were also many other big news stories, such as the realization that there are homeless students right next door at George Mason University, the City Council's progress on affordable housing, an update to the tragic incident that took the life of a beloved local man, the arrest of two Fairfax County school district employees, and more.
