Austin-Lane in

According to the Post's local section, the D20 House of Delegates' race now includes Takoma Park City Council member Joy Austin-Lane. Her announcement of an exploratory committee and a fundraiser puts her into a likely race with former County Council Member Blair Ewing, current Delegates Hixson and Murray and Austin-Lane, Silver Spring Citizens' Advisory Board member Jose Vasquez, and at least two other Democrats for three seats.
