What’s next for the Madison Common Council? Plus, Assembly Candidate Yee Leng Xiong 365 Amplified

    • News

The Madison Common Council met Tuesday for the first time since we reported allegations of domestic abuse against one of its members – allegations he has repeatedly denied. This week, we have a recap of that meeting, which included some contentious discussion of a resolution of support for survivors of domestic abuse. We also get updates on the next chapter for beloved Vietnamese restaurant Ha Long Bay, and Mt. Zion Baptist Church’s new building project. Plus, Yee Leng Xiong joins us from Marathon County to get us up to speed on his campaign to become the first Hmong American member of the Wisconsin State Assembly. And finally … what cuisine did Top Chef Wisconsin miss?
