Great community asset!
This is such a great resource for understanding crucial local issues!
Approachable and Informative!
I just listened to Episode 42 featuring Scott Ferguson and Benjamin Wilson re: how public federal funding can save and stabilize our local communities and school districts from an impending COVID19 recession. Jessica’s questions and steering the conversation towards what the AVERAGE voter and taxpayer needs to know about these complex issues were spot-on and well managed throughout the entire episode - kudos! I have 3 other episodes already on my queue list to hear next.
Impressive and so useful
It can be hard for the average citizen to get in-depth, quality information regarding local politics and candidates. Jessica’s interviews are thoughtful and revealing. She is a respectful and thorough interviewer who cuts through the sound bytes and mere name recognition so that ordinary folks can learn more about the names on the ballot. Highly recommend.
