    With the Council and staff working from home, the latest editions of Hearing the Council have been recorded via Zoom and Facebook Live. Ward 3 Councilmember Mary Cheh has been one degree of separation from many recent news stories--she is participating in a COVID vaccine trial, she was sworn into office by the dearly missed Ruth Bader Ginsburg, she's a Constitutional law expert so she's fully up to speed on the ongoing Supreme Court confirmation hearings, and she was the co-introducer of the recent tenant protection and eviction reform legislation passed unanimously by the Council. We discuss all those issues in our recent interview.
