This week's guests on The Annapolis Podcast are the self-proclaimed "3 Amigos," Dajuan Gay, Bumper Moyer and Nevin Young. All three candidates ran as underdogs and lost their elections. Dajuan Gay was seeking to represent the people of Ward 6 in Annapolis. Bumper Moyer was running to represent Ward 8 in Annapolis. Nevin Young was attempting to become Mayor of Annapolis. We discuss their elections and what they have cooking in the future. Of course, we talk about the unlikely friendship of these three individuals and the City that brought them together.

This week's guest on The Annapolis Podcast is Judicial Candidate Claudia Barber. I asked her these questions, which were the same questions I asked the sitting judges. (I will always give equal time, when practical, to any candidates running for office.) Here are the questions I asked: What first brought you to the Annapolis area? Why did you initially want to become a judge? How would you represent the judiciary in the community? Why should people care who their judges are? If you were Mayor for a day in Annapolis and could wave your magic wand and get something done, what would you get done? What is your favorite restaurant in Annapolis? Who else would be a good guest to have on the podcast?
