On this episode, I chat with Sandra White who is a running for Antioch City Council in District 4. White is an Antioch Crime Commissioner who is running to support law enforcement and reduce crime.

- 07:58 – White gives her reaction to the treatment of Mayor Sean Wright. We get into not being able to speak on a record or performance, one has to find ways to draw attention to other issues.
