It's not resource is It's poor leadership. This truck is a picture of a plow was downtown 6:40 A.m. Thursday, so just a little while ago. Going over the same streets while residential neighborhoods are untouched. I see pavement. One pass is all we're asking for. Tony Katz 93. W I. B. C Good morning. It's good to be with you. Um Well. Now we've got ourselves a question because Dan Parker Who is the director of department public works. Saying that a lack of equipment of funding means they can't afford to keep plowing the streets of the rate they have over the last 72 hours. Right. What he said is is that there was so much know that we have blown through our overtime budget. And I asked this. This was the start of the show. I should have had. Look, it's possible is a lot of snow. It's gonna run out of some money. But you you said over time, but you still have Yourself the ability to Theo plow, but there are streets and having been plowed. And now the argument is you don't have the equipment to do the planning. Okay? I think now you have the right to start showing some anger. You know it's funny map there yesterday, and I'm not I'm not. I'm not throwing you under the bus. I'm just sharing something that you said was I didn't know the day before. I didn't like the way the roads looked right and me. And and maybe what people would consider an uncharacteristic moment. I'm like, Let's give these guys a chance to do their work to do their job. And I believe that to be true, because I'm I'm very rarely angry at the guy in the plow. I appreciate that guy. And and thank you. But if we have streets that have not been touched. Well, that's an issue. Have you say? Well, we don't have any other money. The question is, Where is the money going? It's there are some streets that you're going to touch several times. There's some street you're gonna touch once. Can we ask out loud, whether or not Once again, Dan Parker's up to the task. It's question we've asked before, and the answer was a at the time a resounding Earth shattering. No, I mean it was just It was just, you know, people like Hey, do you think Dan Parker's up to the job and they laughed out loud? So now I'm left with the same question. Because now it's it's It. It's one thing to say We had a tremendous amount of snow and we did. It's another thing to say Sorry streets of Indianapolis, you get no love. Well, could they have gotten love before is this Is this some kind of play? I assume this is going to be looked at Right. I only have so much bandwidth. Right? I don't think I'm gonna be able to investigate this one. But this is this is worth understanding exactly where they put their time and attention and where they put their dollars and how much they spend on painting the streets with black lives matter, as opposed to making sure that black men and women across central Indiana across Indianapolis could get to work. I mean, I'm asking, in their parlance, so so let them figure out how to answer it. But right now is Matt Bear has been describing the roads are Awful. And Matt, if you're there, let me bring you up. Really? Really You back, Tony, we'll get to the popcorn Mama guys guaranteed, But the snow is still coming down and and really thought this was just gonna be just a little more spread out a little more easy to deal with, but no, it's more concentrated in these few hours and an inch to three inches, which you know is gonna be three inches. And Matt, you're reporting on slide offs reporting on issues. I just saw Stephanie need from wish TV putting out that it's just a mess all the way around. Yeah, it's really bad right now, Tony. I mean, I've looked at the city streets today the one ways and they are covered in snow. Okay? Yeah. I mean, it's a thin layer, but you have to be careful coming in on these one ways right now, And that's the problem. As we expect. We had to make snow Storm and everything. Everybody's excited. It's over now. It's over now. No, it's not over. Okay, You have to be careful on these one ways right now.

"Right now. 63 in Annapolis, 59 in Middle River. You're on the morning drive with Casey in Elliot. We've got congressional candidate can play sick running in the seventh. Up against Democrat Crazy and Kim is a Republican. And she joins us for next 26 miniatures. Also, if you do have a question, give us a call. I do have a question. My question is that Thiss City for a long time. Covering this issues for a long time. And nothing ever seems to change as faras away that we approach crime that we approach education. So what do you think him is most important for this district? What issue? What? What message do you have for voters? Why Kim Classic? Why should they vote for you? There's many things I think we can do. A big one is career opportunities. There doesn't seem to be enough opportunities. I think in this district when you look at the size of the Baltimore City port, you look at the fact that we used to be a manufacturing powerhouse. And I talk about you know the fact that we had to rely on other countries for a PP. Why not bring the billion dollar medical equipment industry right back through our port until America in general, we can have manufacturing back here and helping with career opportunities. We could do job training. We could be career training, we could run apprenticeship programs to the high schools. The school choices. I'm a big proponent for school choice. A cz. We see even during this pandemic, and the people realise this, But we have a lot of what they call it dead zones in Baltimore City, So we have a lot of kids that are supposed to be learning online right now. That still are not And so you know for me is we're not taking education serious enough. You know, education is the he said. We have to focus on that. But the corruption in general, just all the money that seems to have gone missing to know that Trump sent $15.7 billion the Baltimore area 2018 prior that you had President Obama and Congressman Elijah Cummings. Secure billions of dollars, right after the 2015 right here. It is in 2020 at these areas where that money was supposed be implemented. Looks exactly the same. It doesn't make any sense. So the money's missing. You know, as we were talking about the trash pushed those videos last July 2019 you know, we heard from our department public works that they needed more funding. They couldn't possibly pick up all the trash in all of these areas, right? But as Trump was tweeting them, they're going back and forth. You know publicly about it. They take 77,000 sanitary sanitation cases down to 260. Without any more funding, So the money is there they can accomplish it. And this is what we see in the Baltimore city public schools a CEO is making. What is it $350,000 a year? We've got a 3rd 39 High school's 13 of them in Baltimore. The kids graduate not proficient in math, you know, and it's like what we expect for them to be on the streets on this account in the surrounding areas, they're feeling that crime and violence we see the uptick. We see it. Understand. You know what people are going through it? I think, even just living on York Road right now, everyone talks about the fact that there's really little live there. You know, writers found Road is another one where the crime is is creeping up every single month, but the number of homicides a number of armed Carjackings. We've got people that are just living in fear, and we don't have to. Come tell me about the food deserts in medical deserts in Baltimore. Yeah, so a big one is an Easter Would. I don't know Dr. Elby, probably doing Doc Cheatham. I met with him. Previously, occasions actually took him down to the White House to meet with the administration and a couple other West Baltimore leaders to talk about the fact that there are food deserts and the fact that there are parts of Baltimore Where they need it. The most that are not in the opportunity zone map at Easter. Would Sandtown Charles Reeves, they are left out of it s O. You know, for me to hear Doc Cheatham say that he went back and forth with Congressman Cummings. You know, he used to try to go back and forth, and it would never prioritize even just getting the grocery stores at the food markets. You know, just actually doing what needs to be done as far as a better quality of life in these areas, But you have to have a food desert in 2020 in an area that sees billions of dollars a year. I don't understand how this is even possible. And the fact that you know what actually says. They think you're speaks up. I think that's why we need a Republican in the seat. We need someone to follow the money. No fear, no favor. Just open the books and exposed to make him on again. You're absolutely right about food, deserts, medical deserts and school choice. But all of this is incumbent upon people feeling safe. If you don't feel safe to let your Children walk to school or to go shop somewhere, or if you don't have business is willing to come into Baltimore because of rampant crime That has to be that's the big elephant in the room and yet We've changed commissioners almost like we do underwear on But it is. It is said that nobody seems to come up with the solution for your thoughts on how we tackle this crime problem. Yes. Oh, this is so frustrating because see I fell. Councilman Brandon's got on Twitter. And he every every week like clockwork. He's saying we need justice for this individual. This person was shot Kill the bus driver every single week. Meanwhile, this is a guys in city houses since 2011. He's been the chair of the violence committee since 2014. Yet he's pushing is he's got a new path forward. I think it is. I like you know, no one seems to have any ideas I don't see ever did the police Commissioner's thie F o P. They go back and forth on Twitter with the mayor's office and the boss were police department anyone. They come into a room and have a conversation. The last time I realized that they came and even spoke to each other was wet ethic. Governor Hogan had them all capital, Rome would have a conversation. And then right After that, Mayor Pew was thinks she was indicted. And then that's when you know all that went down. But you have the love of corruption that we have, you know, in all departments, I think contributes to the fact that we can never seem to come up with a plan to get a handle of the crime of violence. I spoke to some majors, they said, You know if we can get back to what we did in 2014 prior to consent to create that would help. They want to go back to clearing quarters, they said. That was helpful on then we have to work with our state's attorney, and the prosecutors and the judges are state's attorney literally gives people a slap on the wrist. And then you see people come back out on the streets. There was this murder suspect. 11 time. Repeat offender. How is he? 11 Time? Repeat offender. Makes absolutely no sense. They're not locking up these violent criminals. Now the couple left of involved. The killing of Marcus Parks had a rap sheet. They were wanted as well.

For the company and just simply ask you questions you know, get on the radar of the very people who might influence you actually getting an interview, so here's your tip by connecting with people on the inside of the companies that which you want to work, you will instantly set yourself apart like there's not many people who do that. Most people just they see a job online. They read the job description. They hit the apply, and then that's it. They just wait for the automated response and maybe get a call back, maybe they. They don't typically people find jobs because of a referral, we're network, not just applying John Online and in this case, the hiring manager or the decision maker interviews people who come recommended or by way of maybe like a personal referral before they even start sorting through the massive pile of resumes that come in through the company job posting in their all nine applicant tracking system. So what you WanNa do is for example. You are an accountant. You're looking for an accounting job. You see a job on say, Ziprecruiter or and indeed. Read the job description looks like a good fit. You hit the apply. Submit your resume. Fill out the information. Of course you're going to immediately get that email back, saying. Hey, we receive your resume. If you don't hear from US Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. You know the drill. Here's what you WanNa do at that point. You're going to want to go over to link ten and go into the search bar and you're GONNA type in the company name and you're going to go to that business page, and then from there it's going to tell you generally over to the right and a blue link that there are you know one hundred people that work there are three hundred. Hundred people that work there or fifty four hundred people that work there in May. Enlist people that you might already be connected to that happen to work at that company. So you're click on that link and you're gonNA. pull up all the people that work there and you're going to do a deeper dive in the search and screen that search for other accountants that worked there or just use A. Search term like accounting or finance or whatever it is, and then start looking for people who work in that department work in that division within the company, and then start sending you know invites to connect pb. You can even connect with the hiring manager, so you're going to find somebody you're going to want to connect with. Let's say maybe they accept your connection, but that's about all the amount. The you know that's about all that you get from. Reaching out and making the invite what you WanNa do then is go over to the company's web page. Find their contact information. Make a phone call. And then you'll probably get their automated system or receptions. Ask for the person that you've just connected with, and you're going to want to put maybe a twenty four hour to forty eight hour space between the time. You connect unwilling den and the time that you do this, but then you're going to want to ask for that person. Leave a message, just say hey, so and so we connected on link Danjus recently I recently saw job. Ad For an accounting position that was posted I'd love to chat with you further about the opportunity I think there might be a really good fit here, and of course you can do this, too.

They're actually email. You can use a service like hunter dot Io, where you can type in the web address. For a company and it'll give you the potential email addresses that you could use to try and connect with the hiring manager, and actually cinder resume directly to them.

The state counts twenty-six inmates total with cove in nineteen the state released about eight hundred fifty inmates who qualified as a way to help slow the spread of the virus. Barkley says his department worked with tribes for enrolled members. Who were released? The office of tribal relations within the Department of Corrections has Desert knees from each of the Twenty Nine federally recognized tribes within the State of Washington. And so we are office was in contact with those tribal delegates to let them know Which tribal members were Qualified under the rapid reentry or commutation furlough so that we could further smoothie reentry process between those native individuals and the home communities to which they returning It allowed us to ask what resources might be a need whether that is You know whether we could focus on on clothing or make sure that the tribe had available foodbank resources and any type of Services that those individuals needed on a case by case basis we were able to better communicate with those tribes And again hopefully guarantee a more smooth and successful reintegration back to the community. We've been very pleased with the reception we've received from the tribes and Very pleased with the way that We built systems before code so as to work on releases for our native peoples in that. Was Jeremy Barklay with the Washington Department of Corrections? The system also requires physical distancing mandatory face covering for all inmates and staff an additional cleaning and disinfecting. That's one view into all of this. What's yours go ahead and join us right now at one. Eight hundred nine six two eight. Four eight is the number and joining us today. Out of Seattle Washington is Gabe Glenda. He is the managing noyer for Glenda Brodmann and founder of hoyt he belongs to the Round Valley Indian tribes are pleasure to have him here.

What's going on there in Washington state but give us a further view into this What are you seeing? What are you witnessing especially with the Washington stance on releasing state prison inmates early? I work with Hoy which is a nonprofit off named after the she'd word that means See you again. We never say goodbye. We've been working for the last ten years on making sure. Indigenous relatives in iron houses are able to spiritually rehabilitate. We work closely with a sister organization native American Reentry Services that runs a program that prepares them particularly spiritual return to society so that we don't mind them in trouble again and we've been working hard as we could for the last several weeks With the State Department of Corrections and we very closely with Mr Barklay and Lynn. Dennis tribal liaison for the Department of Corrections. LemMe Tribal member and we should everything they've done but we've really been feeling sort of like we're on the outside looking in in sort of a helpless way We've tried to help furnish PT donations from a local tribe especially when one of its own tribal members contract to positive for the disease at Monroe Corrections Center We have a bunch of able sewers in all of our circles within the state's prison system and we tried to have them be available to so masks for example or use within the prisons and we were unable to do that. we've been hamstrung and our ability to facilitate sweat lodge ceremony drumming circle or other spiritual activities to ensure. That relatives are are coping with this catastrophe and the best way possible without compromising Their own mental ability in wellbeing. And so we've worked with the DNC tried to work with the DNC and we're not trying to criticize them because we know they're in an unprecedented situation and taking all precautions. We believe but it's been difficult for us to sit on the sidelines and not do it. We normally do over the last eight or ten weeks and watch watch this thing on unfold as too early release We are encouraged that. A number of prisoners in our state have been released We would encourage the state to do more in that respect there are certain populations of our included. That should not be behind bars for example. Our our juvenile without parole Prisoners meaning a are men and women who were sentenced for horrible mistakes they made when they were juveniles sentenced to life without parole for example. But that's been deemed accrue on usual and unconstitutional punishment and so there are certain populations like those populations which includes cinnabar native relatives. Who We know about who should be added to these lists of people either of age or Health affliction or other status. That should be considered for early release

And that's really the thing that makes them unsafe for people to swim in. What was the problem? Sewer pipes were just using. It's going to cost a billion dollars to fix this problem kind of lucky that we found just one big problem album that would address. Eighty percent of our sewer overflows and the problem is really a pipe misalignments That's reducing the capacity of a huge sewer pipe that runs halfway across the city to the treatment plant and so the department public works is working on that repair right now and it'll be done by the end of twenty twenty.

million the stated actually wanted something like seventeen billion yesterday Purdue pharma proposed a settlement in the nation wide open its lawsuit that would have them pay out somewhere in the neighborhood of ten to twelve billion dollars we have a case right now pending before an Ohio judge and as you may recall the city of Covington filed a lawsuit about a year or so ago against the drug companies and they hired a proper bone our to wrap them in court she's a an attorney now to hire for the a city Covington and joins manicure hearing centers dot com hotline talking about that not one but two big bomb shells out of the opioid suit and she joins me on the on the hotline to talk about this morning by ray ban good how are you I'm doing fine yeah thank you appreciated so so the I guess the overall view here is that that not only is are going to be monies but there's gonna be anti overdose drugs and they're gonna be give money to causes from the sale of other drugs to to help fix the opioid crisis that a hand in it as I understand those are the elements of the a settlement in the and what the court found correct yeah that there's a proposed settlement that would lead I think by the New York we don't know where leaking in I've not been creating the settlement discussions so you're always very well read and very well prepared for some of the thing and so my understanding is that there has been a settlement proposal and part of it is I mean the total eight you're right is between ten billion and twelve billion including the three billion taxpayer contribution factors are the owners of the company and they were trying to avoid of course personal liability so I think that they they're really trying to quit that moment together it's also proposing restructuring the company under chapter eleven bankruptcy and then so transformed private company into a public benefits for a trap and that would allow all the profits from future drug sales from what I understand including the opioid painkiller oxycontin to go to the point and lastly it would give me only develop grounded for drug addiction treatment free to the public which is which isn't Stanshall I mean that's never been this is unprecedented as far as that that is concerned you're talking about when the biggest pharmaceutical companies to world and essentially having to be blown up and starting over again I guess the big question is moving forward is that this is really change how drug companies inherently our structure to how they do business it's changed I know because I know some pharmaceutical rep today you know we can't even bring donuts to the doctor's office anymore like we used to because it's all tied to this right so they're structural changes going to make sure this never happens again or well it because there's so much money involved well I don't know about the Dennis the doctors you know there is a big ruling that you mentioned in Oklahoma again that Johnson Johnson another cab company and most of the lawsuits are based on something called nuisance liability in Johnson Johnson is just the manufacturer but you know it and that you can have a liability for manufacturing something that you know being used for an illegal harm planned you know the volume for sale that I found the look relative to the population so in Oklahoma the judge said in his opinion at least three hundred twenty six million opioid point hello to our defense a number every doll to receive a hundred and ten that's incredible all kinds of examples like that throughout the country yeah I was on the West Virginia the closest to home for that one Barbara I I you obviously you're involved are involved in the city of Covington lawsuit to how does this is a fact that relative to either a settlement or moving forward with things well just entering minder there's federal law over two thousand planes which include plain state county city and other governmental entities combined into one which is called the multi taking medication pending up in Cleveland the Northern District of Ohio kind of a federal judge and culture and all the plane to my two dozen manufactures with your readers and retailers prescription drugs for the bubble each of their role in the public health right you killed hundreds of thousands of people okay so having ten is the one plane in that litigation

development neighborhood service and and the Pyrenean EMF expenditures public health expenditures this call manager in the fifties had Q. in your community between five and ten million dollars per

countless times over in the state of Kentucky Ohio Indiana in the United States as well including the Oklahoma where I Johnson Johnson gonna pay five hundred seventy two million in damages that's going to clean out all these companies if that continues at the other side of this thing to an as a layperson help me understand as a barber on arson attorney she's representing the city coming ten in the lawsuits OP lawsuits against drug companies may have heard that Oklahoma came up with the seven hundred and five hundred seventy two dollars million million dollar settlement settlement I guess say it's an award pretty pharma proposed a at ten to twelve billion dollar settlement nationally speaking to we'll see what the impact there is but if you look at this specific to produce pharma the settlement is I think they said we're only responsible for like one percent of the opioid salesman in America if not the world in yet if you look at the amount of money that that being awarded here it's about a third of the value of the company what is the award for reflect that relative to the percentage the problem the Purdue pharma specifically contributed to with opioids Morgan Oklahoma well I'm looking at overall if if I were if if I said okay well for responsible for one percent of the sales and we should take one percent of the gross profits are net profits of the company which is as far less than the you know ten to twelve billion dollars because the companies are worth thirty five billion only work three five yeah yeah I mean I don't know him again I don't I'm not privy to the settlement discussions but I can tell you in Oklahoma Johnson Johnson was really strange and then that was left holding the bag in that case the Purdue Carmen had settled with in in Oklahoma and I can't remember the exact I think with seventy two million eight eight in it they settled in that case Johnson Johnson you know we know them as a baby shampoo and Danielle gentle stuff right yeah that's my said wait jobs with Johnson Johnson had to do with it interestingly like back in the early two thousands and what they needed and towards the boat they're popular product Tylenol with codeine they bought a business good crew in class and Toby and they pop even par way can't mania which is off the coast of Australia so by two thousand fifteen at the height of the opioid epidemic they were the leading choir the Walgreens thank you through their opium crop so that's really what their participation in it but the judge who wrote it Johnson Johnson had promulgated a fall leading in danger of marketing campaign because exponentially increased rate the diction an overdose death and baby born apparently they had a marketing campaign overly graphic and one of the things that the theme that runs through all of the case Caitlyn sales reps reproach to avoid what they laid what they labeled the corn addiction the people I mean I get that you know in contacts I have a product I want to maximize my return because a research and development because of stock a shareholder value all these things are driving sales people do what they do in marketing to and that is okay how do we craft a message here to maximize the amount of sales we can have the only problem with this is you're not selling you know window cleaner you're selling a highly addictive substance and and that's where the pitfall here's what this whole thing Barbara Bonner get that the other wanted to is okay Johnson and Johnson a bigger this Tasmanian poppy the that was big for in feeling the epidemic Samus proprietary version or it's great you know it's an even on a letter to the got into the right saying that others low risk and low danger of abuse which of course totally was against what it was that that their scientific division found out so that way we're gonna put all our eggs in this basket alright so now ourselves to come is like pretty Farman Fizer another's great so you got Johnson Johnson implicated you've got Purdue pharma implicated where's the role of the government allege watch dogs here I know it brought this up in the past we talk about this issue but it is not their job the FDA food and drug administration is not their job to make sure that these products are what they say they are relative to research and keep in mind that there are congressmen and senators who voted for even after we knew the addictive nature to some degree that an obamacare legislation expanded insurance coverage for this class of drugs in the FDA approved that worst responsibility on the part of the government you know and we can talk about the black palm and that sort of gets into the all good for the patient but also it the way it is marketed so when they're being overly aggressive and there are no more weeding talking about the diction and they actually lie about the addiction which is in town over and over that architects say not again and if you remember one of things we talked about me it was never intended when the FDA approved it was never intended to be used more more than just a short term pain killer never intended for long term use and turned back how would we being Union there's a fine line between that right so yeah if if you're pushing the pills on doctors and pushing the penalty for long term use com and telling doctors create their malpractice they don't need it for long term use and there's just so many little story unbelievable you know then that basically Bob on on the doctors.

"Comments, the focus. Well, the focal point are the thoughts about what's going on in the world. General horn is here with her thoughts. What's going on in the world? Korea healing as well Kerr, schilling it's controls. No studio in Washington. I'm Doug Stephan here to bring you a good day starting with Jennifer's lead. We're all listening with bated breath. Jennifer. Well, there's a new one in the race. There is a brand new democrat who has jumped into the proverbial clown car. Democrats reading in twenty twenty to take on President Trump. I think this makes twenty two candidates now. And then there's one Republican Twenty-three candidates in the race twenty four if you count President Trump, and of course, that doesn't even begin to count all of the people who will run as independents and libertarians and green party, Steve Bullock is the latest. He is the Fifty-three-year-old governor of Montana. He is running for president. There is a diverse field of candidates taking shape. It's interesting to see in. I almost wonder if the timing on this was kind of a bummer to Montana governor because Joe Biden wants he entered the racist kind of taken a lot of oxygen out for some of these candidates who are don't have quite the brand name that Joe Biden does. But this is still open field so Montana. Governor Steve Bullock has jumped in he is considered to be a moderate democrat. They call him a moderate white guy. So there's not any of those running in the way race wing. He's the four. Male candidates starting with his let his last name starts the letter B. So a lot of bees in the race. But little name recognition. I think I didn't. I studied this stuff. You know, this is like my job. Now to know who these people are I had not heard of governor Bullock. But apparently people he thinks he can he can raise his brand awareness. He made an announcement on Twitter. He had a three minute announcement video. He talked about bipartisanship he talked about fighting corruption than he also talked about his humble beginnings being raised by single mother in a family that struggled to get by. He's got a campaign launch rally this week. And then he goes on an eight stop swing to Iowa through the weekend. So you'll be seeing more from Steve Bullock, the governor of Montana about that live in Iowa New Hampshire their sport on the weekend. Friday and Saturday is going to rallies. A little swag and comes to town. We have a couple of station Montana is a fairly popular from what I gather looking at some of the newsletters from the stations, they're fairly popular governor. So is he we're at all shakes out a lot of shaking rattling and rolling going on as you. That's yeah. That's what people don't realize that the first debates will not be until the end of June. And this is I don't know if you guys are aware how the debates are going to happen. But because there are so many candidates the debates will happen in two nights. So they'll be one on. I think it's Tuesday and went on Wednesday. Both will happen in Miami. The both happened at the same venue, which already to me means fatigue. I think for people in Miami to go two nights for people to watch two nights. I think that could be problematic, but they didn't want to do what Republicans did in two thousand sixteen which was half. Remember that pre-debate and then like the bay kids table. So the way they're going to get around that is do like an anonymous drawing. So you don't know who's going. To be on what stage somebody might be on Tuesday. Somebody might be on Wednesday and to qualify for the debates. You have to have I think sixty thousand individual donations or you have to be at a certain level of pulling their several stipulations that you need to be to actually even qualify for the debate. And right now several candidates including people that we thought would be doing better. Like, here's Ston gillibrand are struggling to even qualify. Not even moving the needle she's cracking an egg. And so there's they're struggling to just qualify to make it to this debate. And one of the things that Biden has done that a lot of people are stealing from him using his idea is he selling like, he's asking for dollar donations. If you look at his Twitter, you're gonna see he's saying you can support me for president just donating one dollar and a lot of other candidates are doing that. Because it doesn't matter how much people donate you just need sixty thousand individual donors, or whatever it is that they have is the number to qualify you. So I could give somebody a nickel they count it as a campaign donation, and that would get them qualified. And so now a lot of. Those candidates are scrambling to that model which is pretty smart because at least it gets you in the running for the first time around people who don't make the debate stage are legitimately already out of the race before it even starts. There's a lot of discussion about diversity how diverse the group is women people of color that sort of thing I'm beginning to become a little numb to this debate. This discussion your and a half just on the national level. I see it here. Locally. We have a black mayor in framingham. Couple of years ago framingham. I grown up this community this community all my life. And one of the things that I was thankful for a kid when I started learning about what diversity really was is that I was exposed to a lot of different thoughts a lot of different lifestyles a lot of different people on different experiences. And I thought it added, well, frankly, think it adds well to my ability to converse with some degree of credibility. What goes on? I don't live in that skin. I don't live in that place. But I have seen shared watched experienced and. You can't really the old for where you don't really know. Somebody's you walk in their shoes. And it's not likely that we all can walk in somebody else's shoes. We can pay attention. If we want to it's a it's sort of really want to are you is it. You never get anybody to change by telling him, you have to change if you expose them to different ideas, and you make it seem like it's a good thing to do. Then you get somewhere at least that's what I found in talking to people that work with me, the people who my family, I think you come down on the heavy handed way. And most of the time it doesn't work, and that's one of the things that I dislike about trumpets. It's too heavy handed sometimes, but that being said, the heavy hand of diversity, and forcing it in many communities, and I go back to my own community. Here hired a one hundred thousand dollar team to come in and study diversity in the community. And the department heads were asked to talk about in the mayor has been agitating for diversity officer. And what I've found is. That says she's become the mayor a lot of people have been hired to work in. City hall who don't have any competence. They just happen to look right or sound, right. But they don't know what they're doing. So there's a fine line. And when I look at this report from these diversity officers who say there are many people. I've said this many times in the year more Brazilians live in this community than any of the place on the planet, accepted, Brazil. There are thousands and thousands and thousands of Brazilians who moved in the last forty years in framingham. Because they found it to be a place where they could launch a career start a business, whatever it is. And they assimilated fairly well into the community. But this particular report suggests that we don't have Brazilians in management positions. We have a lot of workers in in in the department public works or street department, or whatever it is. But we don't have any managers and what they failed to take into account, and this is no fault of ours in this community. I don't I'm gonna. What you're gonna blame somebody because it just happens. There are no educated folks from this group who choose to go into other areas. So what we do. And this is what really bothers me about diversity and getting people to assimilate into allow and encourage people have different colors, whatever the the the focus is that you sometimes go too far in getting people into jobs before they're ready. And that's the case. I don't I'm not speaking for any the community. Any other town any other state? I don't know from nothing about other places. But I think this is a danger that we find ourselves in. And then the conundrum is how do you? How do you is it my responsibility, our responsibility to give them the opportunity, or is it their responsibility to take the initiative to go find the opportunity go to school? Learn how if you wanna. Being government. Then you take government courses, you major in government and get involved. There are a lot of people one of the the young lady who is now our state Representative has a a person working for her who has gone to school and has a different background than many of the people. But it just I saw this. And I disliked what I read because it just assumes that just because you're different you're qualified, and you aren't and that's been the whole problem for years when I was in college. There was a there were many attempts to get more people of color into school because they hadn't had a chance, and that's well as far as it goes. So our college admitted and did for period of ten twelve years admit more blacks minorities that sort of thing they all flunked out. I'll play devil's advocate. What about the assumption that for almost all of our history? If you're the same than your qualified. I think that people have I don't know. That rich arguments. Got into Harvard or something because of their parents a lot of thought. About these kids from these stars, Felicity Huffman, and and all these others. They get their kids in these these kids are dumb as a post. They have no business going to to schools like that or or being in the mix. You're right. It doesn't make a difference. Just bring this back to the conversation about twenty twenty. I think what I don't know if you guys had a chance to see Stacey Abrams, but Stacey Abrams yesterday was saying. Look, I've been been people been floating me as a running mate too. Joe bye bed or Rourke was floating her as a as a running mate over the weekend qualify run. I want to run for the top prize. Well, I don't think you should look down on being vice president that's a pretty cool position in this country. So I take issue with her on that amongst many things. But I will these white guys are trying to check boxes because they're pandering to people they think that someone is going to vote for someone that looks like them just give me the best candidate and let that flush itself out if that's a woman if that's a man if that's a gay man, if that's a bicultural woman. Whatever it is let the best candidates to the top for their anyway. Twenty eighteen nineteen f- the hour here on the JV program. Are you getting bored with all of your dinner options? Maybe you can't.

"Center. We've got a number of two one one can tell you where to go, and the please the district attorney the county the city has done a good job because you may recall right after Christmas, we had a number of people who are outside under the Videx. For example, we believe that all those individuals are now in warm places as I'm happy, I'm happy, they should be another thing that public can take advantage of which I think is really great as the free lift rides around town. Pretty amazing. What did you say that was that was a pleasant surprise to me? That's a combination between you thirty the United way and to one one that has stepped forward to say. All right. Here's what you do. If you need a ride to one of these when he's warming rooms or a or a place to stay call to one one free lift Roger available to warming centers using code W J A Y D E N nineteen and that's valid for to rise up to twenty five dollars per ride until Friday night. So. Take advantage of that. If you need a place if you need it right to a warming room or a place to stay walkie mayor. Tom Barrett is with us on WTMJ. It's so cold mayor that the beer trucks are not even running. We've talked to the beer distributors who say their guys are saying off the street. Police officers firefighters those that we need to help take care of us are out working. Do you worry about them when it's this cold? Of course, I do. And I think that everyone should be very thankful to our police officers to our firefighters to our public works workers because they've been out around the clock essentially the last week this has been an incredibly busy week for our department public works crews because they've been obviously doing the ploughing. And now they're doing a lot of cleanup. And we know that there we might even get more snow this weekend. So they've been very very busy libraries. I thought I read that libraries are over extended our slow what we're doing. They're they're not open today. But tomorrow, we think there's a break at about noon, and you reported that but at one o'clock the libraries were open tomorrow. That's what we're going. To be doing tomorrow and the health clinics will open at one o'clock tomorrow as well. We wanna make sure that people are safe. But at the same time, we want to have places for people to go if they need a place to go, Mr Mayor, can I please shift gears. I wanted to ask you about the news on Foxconn today. I know you don't have all the details. It's a story breaking today. But they're saying now that that may not actually be a factory that's built in Mount Pleasant. They will not meet their five thousand dollar job quota for next year that they had promised. It'll be more like a thousand what is your reaction to the changing landscape when it comes to Foxconn? Well, I think everyone has to be concerned whether they embrace it whether they opposed it. I think most people again, regardless of the politics of it felt okay? If we're going to devote all this money. Let's get the jobs, and let's make sure these are good family supporting God. And of course, they were sold as jobs. It would be an essence factory workers. And so they would benefit for example, under employed or unemployed in Racine, Milwaukee that clearly has transformed dramatic. Now, the numbers are changing. And I think there's probably I would be surprised if there wasn't some failsafe in the state contract that they don't get the tax credits. But equally concerning is the huge investment that has to be done at the local level. That's not something that is as easily scaled back. You can't dial up and dial that down as easily as you can the tax credits. So there's obviously reason for governor Iverson his team to be concerned. And I know that they've already talked to the people at facts can. And they're gonna have to figure out a way to make this fair to the taxpayers of the state that is Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett. I spoke it to a close VERA source very close to Foxconn who given me. Some very good information on background unique perspective and insight into what is going on with the Foxconn project. I'm going to share that with you some of the stuff you haven't heard any place else. We'll do that coming up at five twenty on WTMJ. It's four fifty six behold. WGM.

I was talking about this yesterday to somebody. But driven hunt. We call it a lot of shit though. And we used to bury animals we live by a road where a lot of animals hit and killed. So we bury them, you know, the first animals I spent the most time with we're animals with have been hit by vehicles and. So what we would bury mostly dogs. What else I think something else? One time this thing look like a damn fucking small bear bra and it could have been because they have Louisiana black bears. A lot of things, you know. And I'm not saying they're black or anything like that. I'm the saying they happen to be black when people seem and they're just. You know, but we would bury all kind of animals that will get hit by us. But fucking undertake. I see that animal leave it the fuck alone. It's bad luck. Yeah.

They probably cost maybe seven dollars to get rid of them. You know, Bill, whatever should legitimate thoroughfares. He'd get rid of animals, but this dude out there, you know, chucking them in ditch. I guess on his way home because our neighborhood was kind of a cut through between like a nice area in town. So you never did like a stakeout to see who is throwing animal carcasses win out on. Now, we were out there. But we never saw the guy. Let's he drove by and didn't throw out because we're out there.

"And one of the things we always focused on was how our users and our writers were interacting with everyone else in the environment. I think it's really important that conversation happened and that you buy from the entire community, including city regulators, including pedestrian advocacy groups. Otherwise the system is just serving one segment and it's not going to work. I mean, Adam Stevens. I, here's one thing that I kinda struggle with with these these business models because I'm personally believer that American transportation does need to be modernized for the good of the country. But you know to your question about public spaces here we since we have private company, these, these are private companies that are using public spaces to do their business, and I can't think of any other private company that's allowed to do so without some sort of permiting process. Right. And so, I mean, that is one of the the big differences here. Is it just that we're just going to need to very rapidly create permits for these companies or waters? There's this this presumption that these private companies have, you know, can can do business and public spaces were you're absolutely right. And I mean in in got a couple of responses to that number one. We've in our lives since we did develop an ordinance during dependency of the case, the cases ongoing in federal district court. But we did pass an ordinance that allows her department public works to impound the scooters win their found in public ways, which includes sidewalks. Roadways and everything else bird has since removed the scooters from a walkie and mid August, but the whole, the whole model for this scooters relies on them being available in public places though. That's exactly right. And that's why the city is so in innately interested in this. Because as your other guesses mentioned, it's shared public space. We the complaints that the city receives both my office, the police department DPW receives. We get complaints from senior citizens. We got complaints from a visually impaired individuals because their dogs didn't understand what they're silent, you know, and they couldn't deal with them. We got complaints from hotel managers because people are writing them through hotel. You know. Inside their hotels. And so this is not to say that you don't have this as an option. But part of again with the legislative process discusses is where do these things where these things appropriate? 'cause frankly, when they're dropped off at the last minute, people kind of ride them in a way that you would that a child would ride through the street. They're not necessarily obeying traffic laws. They're kind of just, you know, free willing it frankly, and we didn't have the opportunity Milwaukee as I guess, most other municipal, he's didn't have the opportunity to actually have a public debate about it before they were rolled out. I mean, I Calum bushes have any cities had the opportunity to have a real public debate before the rule out happened the top of the show. He talked about how a lot of these showed up, right? And that sort of then sort of crafting what the framework would be after the fact, and it sort of is this rolling decision making process. I think Santa Monica, for example, is a really interesting case study. You mentioned earlier that bird had paid three hundred thousand dollar fine to get back on the. Treats in Santa Monica, but that was really just kind of a stopgap measure. So in the meantime, while they've been operating, Santa Monica has sort of gotten wise to the fact that this is really popular and it's possibly a revenue stream for the city to. So they their city council and Santa Monica plans to launch a pilot program beginning in the middle of September, and that would require companies to pay an annual licensing fee of twenty thousand dollars. And then also a fee of one hundred and thirty dollars per scooter that they put on the streets. And so what I think is interesting is worth asking and perhaps our our friend from a walkie can answer is where's that balance between sort of the bottom land consideration of a city and also the safety. If you say that you're worried about the safety of your citizens and you shouldn't be here. Oh, but we'll let you be here. If you pay a large sum of money to operate on our streets, you know, is the safety argument fully genuine Adam Stevens? Well, that's that's great example..

Santa Monica Adam Stevens DPW Milwaukee three hundred thousand dollar twenty thousand dollars thirty dollars
