About Miranda

Miranda Spivack writes about government and politics in the suburbs, based in the Post’s bureau in Largo in Prince George’s County, where she has written extensively about the county’s efforts to emerge from the shadow of corruption left by the convictions of the former county executive, his wife and several associates. She has also closely tracked efforts to establish a new health care system in the county, and the behind-the-scenes efforts to bring a new, teaching hospital to the region.

She knows every Beltway exit, having grown up in Fairfax County, and covered Howard, Montgomery and Prince George’s counties for The Washington Post.

A former editor for the Post and the Gazette Newspapers, Spivack previously worked as a Washington correspondent for The Hartford Courant. She is devoted to local news after covering national politics, the defense industry and the U.S. Supreme Court.

She has won several awards for her work, most recently First Place for Local Government from the Maryland-Delaware-DC Press Association.

Spivack holds a B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College and a master’s degree from Yale Law School, where she was a Ford Foundation fellow. She and her husband, a lawyer for the federal government, have two daughters, who have mostly flown the nest.
