“It used to be important that the Democrats won. Now it’s vital for the survival of American democracy.”
For today’s show, guest host David Ahrens spends the hour with Dave Cieslewicz, former mayor of Madison, talking about his new book, Light Blue, which offers “a different kind of agenda for the Democratic party.”
Dave Cieslewicz was the mayor of Madison, Wisconsin from 2003 to 2011. He keeps a blog called Yellow Stripes & Dead Armadillos and writes the “Citizen Dave” column for Isthmus. He is the author of Light Blue: How Center-Left Moderates Can Build an Enduring Democratic Majority (Maple House Publishing, 2022).
