BY TEQUILA MINSKY | Where many of the politicos must go, including judges, those running for judge, and those people who want to be judges, the Village Independent Democrats seasonal party is an annual event everyone looks forward to.

Mixing seasonal party cheer with politics—the annual VID Christmas party held at Frieda Bradlow’s home attracts all the politicians that represent the area. Carolyn Maloney talks about the current status of things in Washington.
