This week, WYSO is airing an interview in three parts with Dayton Mayor Gary Leitzell. Emily McCord spoke with him on Friday, March 11, before Governor Kasich released his budget, but in today's final installment, she did ask him what his thoughts were regarding the collective bargaining legislation that's moving through the house and senate.
Emily McCord speaks to NPR's Sonari Glinton for this week's edition of PoliticsOhio. He's a business reporter who has been in the state to report on Ohio's collective bargaining situation and speaks with McCord about how this fits in to the national scene. Also, he addresses the politics behind President Obama's silence on the matter during a recent visit to Ohio.
In this week's installment of PoliticsOhio, Emily McCord speaks to Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler. On the heels of a very eventful day at the Statehouse, Kasler discusses how Ohio compares to Wisconsin, which is also in the midst of a battle on collective bargaining. Also, she describes Governor Kasich's comments about a police officer in January and the effect on the situation. *Theme music by BJSR
