On WCOA's "Difference Makers" Show
I was a guest on the Quint and Rishy Studer sponsored program "Difference Makers" yesterday morning on AM 1370 WCOA. I enjoyed the chat with Don Parker, and appreciated the invitation to appear on the show.
We talked a lot about what my take aways from 10 years on the school board are, the Newpoint debacle, local school enrollment issues, and also charter schools.
We then transitioned into how I became a County Commissioner and some of the challenges facing the BCC (Jail, OLF 8, Infrastructure) and also some of the initiatives I intend to pursue in this office.
All in all a fun show.
You can listen to a replay of the show here (part I) and here (part II)
