Attorneys for the family say they are still weighing a civil case. Well, some Atlanta city council members say they want to pursue criminal penalties against negligent landlords. Stephanie stokes brought us that story. WAB spent a year reporting at one loan come complex where tenants dealt with rats, mold, and overflowing trash. Now residents at forest cove are in the process of moving out. But a recent series in the Atlanta journal constitution documented how living condition issues also plague other apartments all across the city. Council member Andrea Boone says Atlanta needs broader solutions. What really really bothers me is that the owners you can't get in touch with them. Boone says the owners don't take the city seriously. She wants to ask the Fulton county district attorney to explore criminal charges against them. She crafted a resolution with that request, and it has the support of a majority of her colleagues. The legislation is set to go before the full council next week. Stephanie stokes W ABE news. Let's go now to the coast, where more and more warehouses are popping up around the port of Savannah. And some nearby communities are pushing back.

New passenger ferry service will connect Seattle and Des Moines under a pilot program set to begin next month. We get the details from corwin Hague. On a blue and sparkling day last September, the city of Des Moines tested the idea with a single passenger ferry demonstration ride. It went well, so Des Moines city manager Michael Matthias proposed a pilot project for July through October of 2022. Now the Des Moines city council has approved the extended pilot starting in August. Our existing infrastructure can be used for docking, loading at the dewan Marina space for docking is available in Seattle. The pilot project runs August 10th through October 9th, with four daily round trips between the Des Moines Marina and Seattle's bell harbor aboard a 60 passenger whale watching boat known as a foil cat, for this pilot program, passengers ride free.

John Zmirak Reacts to SCOTUS Strike Down of New York Gun Law

"Meer agz. John, today is Friday the 24th of June. And as we're recording this, we don't know whether the Supreme Court will release its ruling that effectively ends roe V wade. But we do know that has to happen either today or Monday, I think. Yeah, they certainly have the tortured us with suspense, but yesterday they issued a decision, which is every bit as important. Yesterday, and I would say every bit as pro life. Yesterday, the Supreme Court said that the constitution means what it says in the Second Amendment. My hope is that today they're going to say the constitution doesn't mean what it doesn't say, which is anything about the right to kill your baby for sexual convenience. But let's look at the first half of that. New York State, where you live, where I used to live, makes it almost impossible to carry a gun from your own self protection. Unless you are friends with the member of the city council or Holly Hollywood star with a second home in New York or a corporate CEO or somebody with political connections or if you're a diamond dealer. Basically, if you don't deal in diamonds or have political connections, you can not carry a gun. So all the people who live in crime red neighborhoods in New York are out of luck. At best, when they need help in two minutes, the police will be there in ten minutes. And we'll draw a nice chalk circle around their body. This is not consistent with an important document that a lot of liberals don't know about called the United States Constitution

Jack Posobiec Discusses the Inexcusable Inaction of the Uvalde Police

"On the cutting edge of what's happening and you've all day. I think this is important for two reasons. Number one, we should always care about the truth, always. But number two, I think that it's important when it comes to our gun control debate right now. Because if we look at Yuval day as the facts actually show us, this has very little to do about gun purchasing or red flag laws, and a lot more about a police failure to intervene. What are your thoughts? Well, one of the big things that people need to understand about you validity, and it's actually something that even in the initial reporting. And this is something where I do have to ask for forgiveness on because when this all happened, I was over in Davos, Switzerland, I'm going up and down the Alps, where getting detained, we went to Ukraine. I come back. And that's what I really was able to start sinking my teeth into the details here. Then yesterday, the Texas Department of Public Safety comes out. That's the head of the Texas police and they start releasing these documents based on the timeline based on some of the 9-1-1 calls, the dispatcher calls with the local chief. And so now we've been able to dig through those documents to dig through this hearing. And one thing that I think everybody needs to understand is that this guy Pete arradondo, one of the names you need to memorize in this is Pete arradondo. Originally, the way it was being reported, I think a lot of people had the misunderstanding that he was the chief of police for all of you validated. It's not true. He's actually the chief of police for the validity ci DS, the consolidated independent or CIA SD school district. So he's the chief of police just for that school. That is his sole duty, his sole responsibility, and it's a 6 man force that is directly assigned for the security of that school. They're brought on by the school board, and then that's, of course, working in conjunction with the city council. But this really is a situation where he had one charge and that was the defense of this school. And so when

We're not going to be providing any police, and you know what that's okay. I think Memphis police would have done a great job, but they weren't even asked to. The south haven police department. They kick butt. I mean, they had it all, I mean, it was pretty impressive. The security setup they had. But the city council said we don't want him here. They said, we would provide, as a matter of fact, I called him out on it. Some guy named JB smiley, but he's always got a frown on this. I'm about to say it's not a very fitting name. And some guy named martavius, what's his face? Nobody cares about his last name. He's a loser. So anyway, you got these two black city council, guys. And they're bashing Trump saying we don't want to provide him security. And so I called him out, grace baker, on social media. And I said, well, okay, fine. What about Obama? Well, of course we would provide security for Obama. If Obama came to town. I'd say so it's about race. All right, I just want to make sure we're all on the record there. I'm pretty sure it was all crickets after that.

Let me not say one of these, we know that we had federal agents participating in a part of January 6th. And they can tell you what mothers are going to the city council meetings, they can bolster their investigatory skills going after conservatives, but how in the world did they drop the ball on this scenario where you have gymnasts who have been getting sexually assaulted by this creepy coach and they were told and informed about women who had been molested by him sexually assaulted by him and dozens more women were assaulted by him in over a year after the claims were brought to the FBI. Y'all came muster up enough, staffing to protect young women from a sexual predator manipulating young women in gymnastics, but somehow y'all are still talking about January 6th.

"Alex Stein. If you haven't heard of him prime time, 99 Alex Stein, Jackson. I can't even see that on the radio. I'm already going crazy, Morgan. Oh my goodness. Well, thank you. Thank you for taking time. If you're very busy day, you're a small businessman, and an Internet sensation apparently. So praise B, thank you for joining. That is true. And as my sister and Christ, I appreciate being here. And let me tell you something. Being a viral sensation is not easy. It's a lot of pressure and a lot of people have been like, oh, Alex, you know, it's congratulations on all your success or your viral videos. Going viral is a terrible thing Morgan because now I'm like, what am I gonna do next? I've already worn women's swimwear to a city council meeting and like I'm literally gonna have to jump in a fire and light myself on fire next. I just don't know the pressure is it's overwhelming sometimes. Oh my God, okay, so if people are listening and are aware, he's very satirical. And that's the whole point, Alex Stein is hilarious and goes and makes fun of the crazy lefties, the wokeness at city council meetings and government public hearings where you can speak directly to your representatives. And so Alex don't hate me, but I have a clip that I want to show of you and the women's bathing suit. So if we could play that producers. Hello, how are you guys doing, counsel? So my name is Alexandria Stein. And I'm here today to call out transphobia here in Plano. I'm currently being restricted from swimming in the city of planet swim league against the women, even though it's clear that I reassigned my gender last week, like for example, do I look like a man? Obviously a not. This is a woman, but they're not going to let me swim and compete against the ladies because they're transphobia. So what I need you guys to do is I need you to wake up. We have champions like Leah Thomas. She's an NCAA champion. The best swimmer in college today. I can't get a scholarship unless I'm able to send a recruiting tape to these colleges. So they say, oh, oh, you have an unfair advantage Alexandria. What looks like? Does this look like an unfair advantage to you? Alex, can you explain what that was there? Okay, Morgan. So what that is, that's a crazy man that was dropped on his head as a child that has a lot of social issues and what he decided was is he going to do what is called culture jamming is and where we take the most absurd parts of our culture and we jam it in the public's face to try to bring awareness to how crazy the world has become.

"city council" Discussed on Max & Murphy on Politics

"I think that's what we all want. It's just a matter of a matter of how we get there. Yeah, listen, when there's when there's plenty plenty of money, like there is here, thanks to the huge influx of federal funds thanks to higher than expected tax revenue, obviously there's issues with the city's recovery. There's still higher unemployment than pre-pandemic and then a lot of places and there's been real issues with certain jobs, especially related to tourism and so forth coming back online. There's lots of money here to spend. And so it shouldn't be too contentious of a budget process, but for whatever wind up being those few issues that always wind up being a tug of war towards the end. Last couple of questions for you, city council member Justin Brandon chair of the finance committee of the council and along with speaker Adrian Adams and many others at the council, both elected and hired. Crafting of the council response on the preliminary budget. Let me ask you this. Is there one thing that's a city council member Brandon priority that you got in here? You know, is there something for you personally that you see as a really important citywide issue, something for your district. There's just something that you made sure to get in here that was like a top brand priority. Sure. I mean, the way that we do it is very small D democratic, which I like. You know, the budget negotiating team, you know, this mythical group that everyone always asks about. Basically, what we act as sort of a clearing house for the full body. And all the ideas sort of are funneled through BNT. But the way that it's done is no one knows, it's a blind pool, basically. No one knows where the ideas are coming from. And that's done on purpose, right? It's done so that if you like an idea, but you don't like the person who's proposing it or vice versa, which I think is great because it allows for a very democratic process. I mean, look, I'm not gonna lie, I love that quality of life issues are now becoming sexier than they've ever been. It was often me and Paul the loan were the only two maniacs screaming about garbage pickup. And now we've got an army of folks who understand that this is an equity issue. And it's always been an equity issue..

"city council" Discussed on Max & Murphy on Politics

"Safe neighborhood, foundation for everything else. So early on, we identified these quality of life issues across the board. You know, the meetings I was having with members, the conversations and BNT. It was coming up everywhere, and that became immediately we knew that was going to be a big ask in our budget. Again, just to get back to basics. And ultimately, what I'm trying to get to is 6 day a week garbage pickup twice a day. That's sort of the gold standard. And then anything else would be extra. But it was definitely interesting. It was definitely interesting to see that over the past two years, sanitation department is really seen a drastic decrease in the number of programs and services. Due to these budget cuts and composting has become a big issue. But this was across the board, you know? Yeah, no, I've seen it. I've seen it, you saw it even before some of the new city council members took office. They're doing things in November, December to try to get more trash pick up in their council districts that they're about to take over as the council member and then you see people making these announcements in January, celebrating. I secured this many new tracks. It's a big deal, man. The big deal. Big deal also just we've talked about this before. I don't want to take time here. You are generous with your time, especially with having COVID. But we talked about this before about just sort of the basic just getting the basics of city government right and it's just this confounding thing that these are even some of the debates in the discussions happening and as you said, city council members using discretionary funding to increase trash pickup just signals something very wrong. And so hopefully. It worked out. Ultimately, the same government that we would love to see handle managed universal healthcare is also picking up the trash. So if I can't get the garbage picked up, if I can't trust my government to get the garage picked up or get the weeds cut in the park. How can I trust them to deliver on these big ticket items? And that's really the lens that I see it through. And I think a lot of my colleagues see it through. My colleagues want to make believers in working people out of their government. They want to see that the government is working for them. And that's why the budget is so important. And that's why. Yeah, no, and if you look at surveys, if you just talk to people, obviously, at the top of the list for New Yorkers, are things like cleanliness in their communities that we're talking about. Obviously, public safety and reducing crime, affordable.

Joe Biden Labels Putin a 'War Criminal' -- Is He Right?

"Yesterday there was a kind of conflict when it came to describing Vladimir Putin, cut 79, Joe Biden labels, Vladimir Putin, a war criminal, play cut 79. Now, if the story is true, again, if, because there's been a lot of misinformation and disinformation around this topic, it's hard to disagree with the statement saying that Putin is a war criminal. Now I think he misheard somebody or I don't know, his aides corrected him on this. But there's this story that is coming out in the last couple of days about this bombing campaign of this mere Paul theater. Quote, children were spelled out on two sides of the Mari Paul theater before bombing, satellite images show. Basically, they wrote children on both sides of the theater. Now, this might be a true collection of events, or it might be another snake island of ghost of Kyiv. New satellite images from Maxar technologies show that on Monday, the word children was spelled outside of the theater that the maripa city council was bombed on Wednesday. The city council said that on Wednesday, the Russian forces had quote purposefully and cynically destroyed the drama theater in the heart of marital, the plane had dropped a bomb on a building, where hundreds of Mari Paul residents were hiding. So I don't really see how anyone could see that and not believe that is not just immoral, but what a war criminal would

I'm like, well, you know, I did talk about Marilyn Mosby trying to rip off the government by claiming dire circumstances and collecting money from the COVID fund, which was then invested in real estate in Florida. So this woman appears to be a crook. Well, it turns out a crookedness goes even further and it involves not just her, but also her husband, and he is also a public official city council president Nick Mosby, so we have the Nick and Maryland show going on here. Let's figure out what they're doing now. Well, it turns out that it turns out that they have been taking money from their campaign fund. And spending it on their criminal defense. Now, need to think here for a minute about what a campaign fund is and also what the law allows. First of all, there's no prohibition against the campaign fund. Using money for legal purposes. Why? Because campaigns require legal aid. If you set up a campaign, you need an attorney to sort of set it up for you. You obviously need accountants who have legal expertise. There are campaign finance laws you have to deal with also there are other aspects of a campaign that require sound legal advice can we endorse this guy? Is this allowed? Can we do this with this nonprofit, et cetera? So legal expenses of that sort, legal expenses that pertain to the campaign can be used from the campaign. But this is where the Mosby is decide to carry the law to a whole different level. What they're doing is apparently raiding their campaign finance coffers to pay for their own personal criminal

She tweeted out, sympathy for the relatives the families of both the NYPD officers Jason Rivera and wilbert Mora and the killer. This woman literally we know she's against the police. She's said many times before we got a strip funding from the police, their white supremacists and all the garbage that these lunatics on the left say about our police, but she had the audacity councilman borelli to tweet out sympathies and condolences to the families of the family of this monster. I got to get your take on this councilman. Mike, she's an absolute disgrace. I mean, she is someone who doesn't deserve to be in office. She's someone who doesn't deserve to represent a vibrant and historic community like Harlem, frankly, people who live in her district deserve better. And unfortunately, the voters are stuck with her, at least for the next two years before they can find somebody else. You know, Mike, we have a lot of people in the city council and city government here who are African American who are Democrats who I disagree with all the time. But are fundamentally decent people and when two police officers were murdered serving this city, they all found somehow that the strength to say kind things and supportive things about the men and women of law enforcement. It's almost it's almost like being on Mars to find someone who just can't find kind and comforting words to mention two police officers who are killed in her own district. I mean, police officer Rivera was probably her constituent that the guy lived just a mile or even less from where he was killed. This is a member of her community.

Democrats Change Voting Laws in a Bid to Win Elections

"There are some very interesting things going on in the Democratic Party. You would think that if the Democrats are beginning to think that their policies are not that popular, they would work on selling those policies, they would work on pulling back the policies that the American people flatly reject. But no, they have no intention of doing any of that. Their solution is really simple. Let's change who gets to vote. So that's let's try to figure out how we can manipulate the voting process so that we can win we the Democrats can win, despite our unpopular policies. This way we can forge ahead with the policies. We can still pull off election victories. Now a clear sign of this is New York where you would think the Democrats kind of have a lock, the Democrats are gonna win anyway. But even in New York, they're very insecure about their prospects. And so what have they done? They've actually passed a law allowing non citizens and chord dreamers to vote. Now, this is a rule. This is a permission that was passed by the New York City council. It's apparently been approved by the new mayor, Eric Adams. And it will go into effect well. It will go into effect if court challenges don't succeed. But let's look at what they're trying to do. Now they know New York knows they can not allow illegals to vote in presidential elections. In fact, they can't even allow illegals to vote in state elections. So what they're saying is we want to allow illegals to vote in municipal elections. And so this would be elections for local offices, local referendums, that kind of thing. So it's called municipal avoiding rights. And New York City becomes the first major U.S. city to do this to grant widespread municipal voting rights to non

"Thanks for tuning into this episode. We're continuing our series of interviews with the candidates for New York City council speaker. This is a race among roughly 7 candidates who will be among the 51 members of the New York City council come January when the new class of council members and the rest of city government is seated. The council members will vote for one of their own to be their legislative leader, the speaker and a position that comes with immense power and a lot of responsibility and again is voted on by the members of the city council, but those candidates for counsel, including my guest today have been making the rounds talking to people in the media appearing on this podcast and also starting to appear in a variety of forums in front of different interest and advocacy groups to talk about their priorities, their plans, how they might lead the council and so on, there are the 51 members of the council, but there's also a lot of other players in the mix from powerful labor unions to members of Congress, the county party leaders. There's the Republican caucus and conference of the city council, which is now growing in light of the recent elections of the city just held there's mayor elect Eric Adams, of course, former speakers of the city council and more lots of people jockeying, lots of influence happening. But there's also really the nuts and bolts of this eternal internal race are relationship building, coalition building and as you've heard if you've listened to any of the other discussions on the podcast here with some of the candidates for city council speaker. The different candidates have different pitches that they've said they're making to their colleagues about why they should be the legislative leader, their vision for how they'd approach the job of speaker and its many responsibilities leading the legislative body. And there's a lot of room for putting your own imprint on the role and the cities. So I've been talking with the candidates for speaker, including my guest today. I'll be joined in just a second by city council member Diana, Ayala, who's a Democrat representing the 8th city council district, a very interesting district that includes east Harlem, but also parts of the south Bronx. It's one of the few council districts that stretches two boroughs, a lot to talk about here with Diana yala in just a second. If you've missed any recent episodes of the podcast, I have been talking, as I said with a number of the candidates for city council speaker about a mix of their government work and their bid to become the speaker, but.

"The open restaurants and no not everybody loves them, but I love them all the bike lanes. We need more bus lanes, et cetera, but it's pretty much what you just described. And I don't really know. You have to call many agencies to get anything accomplished. That has to stop. So the answer to your question is public realms are. Somebody has to work with all these agencies. Wow, we're supposed to get this street's master plan at some point here. So that seems like a key piece of the puzzle. But any of those things that I mentioned, you just mentioned a few of them that you're supportive of. Anything that I mentioned that you really want to see accelerated, like the trash containerization, pilot that has been very late in coming as far as I can tell. And, you know, is slow moving now, but you know, at least it's moving. The busways, anything you think really is due for a real shot in the arm under the next administration and once we get the streets master plan and if there is a public realms are that you're talking about anything you want to see really, you know, sort of put on steroids in this trash because the rats. I mean, I don't know how many complaints others get. But I am swamped with rat complaints and rats come with the garbage. They also come because we had a certain kind of weather pattern, which apparently rats like. So containerization has to look like something that people want to walk by, open restaurants are great, who's actually figuring out about the trash that surrounds them. We need more pickup of the trash. I could talk about many avenues that need that even with this clean team need a lot of. So yes, I would say trash is one of those issues that needs immediate focus. I think also, I know the other day when I was coming down an avenue that was literally four deep because you had 18 wheelers on both sides doing deliveries. You had a bike lane. You had just regular old parking and you had all the, you know, people doing construction in the area. It was havoc. So there's a lot of discussion. And again, public realms are, should we have areas that are just for pickup and drop off for the 18 wheelers and construction people? How do you deal with parking that isn't available? People are very upset about that. How is congestion pricing going to fit into all of this? The list is endless. And I have no idea where, I mean, I can tell you, you'd have to sit down immediately with people who are expert in this field and to come up with some kind of strategy. I'd love to see this master plan, but I'm more interested in implementation. And how is that going to work? Yeah, huge, huge challenges for the next mayor and other city officials here. All right, I have a list of a hundred more topics to get to with you, but I have to now narrow it down because I don't want to take up too much more of your time. But let me come back to a few other sort of issue topics in a minute, but you are seeking to become speaker of the city council. You are running for city council and pretty coy about whether you'd be seeking speaker. I know you had to get elected first. And then boom, the election was over and you're in somos and you're meeting with council members and then now we're doing the online, the zoom forums with the council speaker candidates. So you're in the mix here..

"Focused on some of those things that we can move that we can move effectively that should have really never have been the responsibility of NYPD to begin with and that those responsibilities NYPD does not necessarily want or need. Is there anything though under that broad category that is remove the NYPD fully or correct me if I'm wrong, but I think in most instances, you subscribe to sort of more of a hybrid model where there's there might be police involved as needed, not a blanket, removal of police from mental health culture police from homelessness response or whatever it might be, but that there's, you know, a balance struck for whatever in whichever direction. Yeah. That's correct. At least until we can master this thing. And really get it to where I think that we can do. Eventually, somewhere down the line, I think that we can graduate from that hybrid model that I think is necessary right now. Until we get the, the number of providers that we need, the strength and providers that we need to be this backbone and create this infrastructure that we need to handle. Said social services, mental health services and advocacy. Once we develop that infrastructure. And I don't think it's going to take us that long. I really don't. I think that we just need to invest in that infrastructure because we've got the know how. We've got the personnel in place. All we have to do is invest in those resources to build up that infrastructure. And I think we can move that hybrid along to something that will be much more stable and permanent. And as we're speaking here, late October, there's been again this intensification of this discussion over school safety agents, are they part of the NYPD? Are they part of the DOE pretty much everybody agreeing that they serve a very important role? They are not armed officers in schools. They are mostly women, women of color. You know, there's a lot of confusion that sometimes happens in this discussion, but anyway, as this discussion is happening, how are you thinking about that? Do you, the mayor's most recent comments basically are that he didn't really want to switch school safety agents from PD to DOE, but the city council wanted that. And that basically, it hasn't really happened. So the next mayor will ultimately make the decision with the next city council..

"Are going to be pleasantly surprised, you know at the unique talent that he brings in from the city. I'm from outside of the city to manage all of his agencies. He, you know, immediately after winning next Tuesday, will embark on, you know, an exercise in a journey to really seek out and find the most talented dynamic charismatic, but smart people to help us write the ship. He knows that so many agencies are dysfunctional. He has talked about that AD nauseum, right? But he also knows that in order to fix it, you have to have competency. And I think that you will see a blended administration of individuals who understand that. And who are in line with his vision for the city. Because ultimately, people voted for him. They didn't vote for the police commissioner. They didn't vote for the sanitation commissioner. They don't vote for the buildings, commissioner. They vote for the mayor. All the roads lead back to the mayor and the people who are accountable to him. People that are responsive to New Yorkers, but people who are competent, people in general will be either disappointed or they will be pleasantly surprised and gratified. But the idea that he is going to turn city hall at city agencies over to the party bosses or to the machines or to the special interest groups, I can assure you, even if they are pushing that narrative of peddling that they will be profoundly profoundly disappointed and let down after January 1st, because he won't do it. You know, the future of the cities that's safe. And he takes it very seriously. He talks about it often and public and private. And he's not going to muck this up. Trust me, he really, really, really does want to turn the city around. He voted a vote of confidence there from a longtime supporter. All right, last two minutes here. Give us one or two things that your constituents are people across the city should know that you're trying to get done here in the city council before the clock runs out. What's top of the list for your priorities here in the final weeks? Well, listen, after the next Tuesday, the priority will be ensuring a smooth transition, making sure that.

"They need to put together the financing needed to make a fair market offer on these properties. Because many times they're going against these larger very well funded sophisticated firms. Who can put together a deal. A little bit faster so It's not a new idea. It's actually been done in washington. Dc and san francisco. They have forms of kobe on the books. So we're hoping to do something like that that that would be seemingly a very big change in how the market works here in the city Is this is. How optimistic are you can get past this this term in the next few months. That seems like a big one to to get done in the final months. It is and we've had a lot of conversations again with all sides you know. I certainly put forward some. I counsel and i know that you have to sit down with the opposition. Everyone and the people in favor and everyone in between so it is something that we're discussing it. Would we would have people that. Are you know who already have a history of affordable housing development so it would just give you a better shot at just leveling the playing field so i think it's something we could get done. I think we all know you need more affordable housing development. It's make it easier. I think is in the best interest of our city. So you know. Figures crossed any other coming priorities that we should know about the the final months of term as we were just getting at can be very tricky in terms of what gets on and not on the council agenda. There's only so many things that the council will finalize because you know without going to too much inside baseball. There's a huge staff of the city council that is evaluating everything in that flags all sorts of issues legal issues etcetera. There's ulcers from negotiations. That happened with the mayoral administration. It's not just about if it's dumping the mayor prioritize or not there's city agencies that have a ton of expertise on all these issues and sometimes they push back on something about how it will be implemented or whatever fairly or not fairly. There's there's just a huge amount that goes into winds up actually getting past that the council. How how is that going to go just generally speaking. You've you've been accountable for his aid Like some of your colleagues so you you know. This is not your first rodeo. But how do you feel like it's going to go. These last few months with everybody sort of trying to get their their legacy stuff done or or trying to set themselves up for you know whatever it is is next. Honestly it's gonna be a little. I don't wanna say chaotic. I think it'll be. I'm going to have some fun on. It'll be challenging. You know people wanna pass bills. Clearly right they wanna do things that are great for their constituents in for the city. I think people are also right. We're focused on just recovery on getting people back to work on getting our tourism numbers back up making people more comfortable about visiting the city. So we've got a lot going on and not a lot of time for the end of term. So i think you can just see the nature of even our our calendar right like we are. Our hearings are picking back up Legislation is being heard. I think it's going to be. We're going to be on our toes. The entire time i mean. That's i love that. That's that's what.

"The city charter to make it easier for city council members to remove an elected official who was deemed to be Unfit criminal. Or just basically betraying the public trust and with that new tool the city council had a perfect opportunity to use it and did not use it so my plan is if i can't convince people to To take action as as someone who tells the truth. I'm gonna give myself an opportunity take action with one of nine votes when leland finally plead guilty reached a plea deal to plead guilty to Misconduct in office. I call for his resignation. I said city council. If they can't make him resign they should remove his staff. They should remove his city car. They should remove his committee assignments. They should basically make him nothing other than a dummy sitting there at the city council table. No one did anything. And so i'm trying to put myself in a position to make sure that the people of detroit have the best representation. They can get and that they should know. At least one person on city council will not put up with any of the bologna that we've had to put up for far too long over the years. The council i mean i remember the days when a council member was bribed for sausage. The council has gotten his reputation. If i if i had the dropbox with me. I'd say you know what no greater hive of scum and villainy from like star wars or something and. It's not good for the city at all to have that reputation with its counsel. Yeah it's not exactly the cantina on tattooing or something like that. Yeah but but we have had some bad actors on their. We've had multiple city council members over the years convicted of various crimes of course k. Everett you know allegedly was bribed. Seventeen of sausage. I once did a charity gig. Where one of the one of the thank you for. The host was free sausage. And i never even cashed it in so you can't get with seventeen pounds of sausage. You can't get me with eight. Three sausage nineteen no sauce. No sasha's not enough sausage in the world to make me betray the people of detroit. I gave up my job. I give it my salary to do this. I'm not doing it for the money. I'm doing it. Because i want to see somebody on city council wants to get some stuff done and not. Just clean things up. I want to see action in the neighborhoods. I wanna see us get more and better police so that we have safety so we can stop some the speeding in our neighborhoods. And frankly i wanna i wanna make sure that people who own property in the city are good. Good good Landlords you know if you're renting a house to somebody that doesn't respect their neighbors if you've rented a house as a speculator and your sledding it crumble in a neighborhood that has a deleterious effect on the entire neighborhood. If you're that person you should be very worried about. What's going to happen when i get to city hall because i am coming for you sir. It's our version of. Don't be that guy that's right. Don't that guy so let's get into the weeds first off. Let's talk about district for for listeners. Who might not be familiar listeners.

"Wanted to ask you about this concept of member deference and how you're thinking about member deference which very often comes down to does the full city council sort of go along with the local member about land use matters which often become a hot topic around rezoning up zonings development That is sometimes commercials. Sometimes housing sometimes mixed. How are you thinking about member deference and The sort of bigger picture of development in new york city I mean i'm believing community difference rate and The thing that member difference doesn't account for for an and enlarge part the reason why i don't agree with it is because our city is so interconnected and land use decisions for example in one part of our city have really significant widespread repercussions across across the city rate And you know you will have areas where i mean you'll have like nimby ism versus the in my backyard versus like all these different competing interests Where at the end of the day. I want to be in a situation where i am fighting with. Other members to make sure that we get the outcome that provides the most equity In outcomes that is censoring black and brown and emigrant and low income and poor new yorkers and that might not be the thing that a member sitting in a certain district is motivated to vote for any number of of different reasons. So i think it's been a good thing to see people from all over the city. Go and you know. Get into these these fights together. Whether it's the out in sunset park or going over to like the flushing reason. We saw people from all over the city. Getting involved in these fights. And i think that's appropriate. Now now there's some people who don't like member difference because they want the council to overrule the local member who is against a development project because the development they believe would be better for the city would create jobs. It would create more housing that the city desperately needs. And then there's people who want to override member deference because they wanna be able to squash development projects. They think the council member is too close to real estate or whatever it might be that latter group is more aligned with what you're thinking. You know one of the concerns. That i hear from people is that people on the left. They just want to say no to. Every every development project the city desperately needs more housing including affordable housing but also including market rate housing especially in wealthier communities and people just want to stop all all growth. yeah. I mean. I think that. That's a common misconception. I can very clearly. And unequivocally say that i am not anti Development in the sense that i know that in the midst of a housing crisis that continues to get worse if we are going to house the une housed. We have to develop new housing. The problem is is that we're not developing in a manner that's actually catching the population of folks that are experiencing housing instability or homelessness rate. And so it's not about just building housing and we had all of these arguments about a lot of what we're building is not actually affordable despite being defined that way and really the need is for not just affordable but deeply ultra affordable housing to house. The the the chronically une housed right so you know..

"We're we're you know we're going to be a city council i think again always knock on wood but we're going to be a more progressive city council but also a more diverse ideologically diversity council right so so we're just gonna be a laboratory of what does it mean when you have women in power Women women You can't see me. Who are listening. But i just did a little dance right because in a different manner in a way that is more sorry guys right. Conciliatory more More we bring we bring folks in and we way off perspectives in a manner that were trying to reach a negotiation in in a in a way that makes sure that we can negotiate the next time right but in a conciliatory more right. So what does it mean for this leadership this body. That is a leader in the country to be as versus. We're going to be. It's gonna be great right like where we're going to be at the table and we're going to be you you can't you can't forget yourself you're if you're already there and so it's the the problems that we face in our community of you know not not just the housing crisis not just a crisis. Where one job isn't enough to pay your bills. Not just a crisis where schools are underfunded but the fact that we know exactly how that is coming to play in our committee right in in our in our community for example we. It's very frustrating. Because it's happening right now. We have resources we can access them. Because of language barriers we have resources but we can access them because of a digital divide right so to have our experiences front and center while we eat in in a more diverse body in in a body that is leading. The nation is just going to be such a. It's a harbinger of what's to come for the rest of the country in so much open that i'm glad you mentioned some of these challenges.

"city council" Discussed on Bosnia and Herzegovina: The Quest for Change

"We are so people to get to know us. And, we'll be proud of every single one of them have no clue how manual will go through pass, but we will consider success. Because we are there we on the ballot from nothing from scratch we got to this point. Most I just one party that started from scratch like we did. Everything else was splintering group group that splintered from party. And and brought with them the knowledge, the history tradition, the seats positions in the parliament to whatever with that comes to money until so. We didn't do. So. We already successful in I don't I don't allow. These old measures in old ways. To be something that will be used to measure us. Nothing wrong with being old all means established try tested. The problem is that in Bosnian. Context it means. Corruption. It means nepotism. And the the really want. To go down the path. Doesn't make it any more significant to say pick up. At least one mayorship. As opposed to the city council seats or does it all their all important I I'm just add two ways to look at it from the marketing perspective and the Messaging Perspective mayorships of very very important. It conveys the sense of strength. The part. We love to have. one two, we have four candidates tall. Other parties served forty, fifty sixty. It is also true that you have more. City Council members who make it. If you have a candidate for mayor. As well. Twenty percent. Greater. Chance of having an additional council seat. however from the perspective of the actual change to the lives of the. Citizens. Members of the city council on much more important than the mayor's because that's where the decisions are. Mayors don't the make decisions they talk about the defined the agenda. But they they have to have the backing of the majority of the city counts. And that is why the majority of council men women. Is more important in the. Practical Sense. Than having mayor. However. In the media. It is more often talked about the mayor's than about. Who has the majority of the City Council? Just one other one kind of going back to the social media you've been so active with it because of the media blockade obviously..
