Esty Dinur takes a year-in-review look at significant topics in state and local politics.
First, local politics. What’s the deal with the new hire on the Common Council? What is the state of body cameras and policing in Madison? How is the city adapting to meet its growing transit needs? And what is the city doing to protect tenant rights? Esty speaks with Rebecca Kemble, her local representative as the City of Madison Alder for District 18.
Then, state politics. It’s been an exhausting year of state election races, but what will Tony Evers be able to accomplish in divided government? What are the ramifications of the recent lame-duck session? What what should we expect in the way of marijuana legalization, Foxconn development, and environmental protection? Esty speaks with Representative Melissa Agard Sargent, serving the 48th Assembly District of Wisconsin.
