On Tuesday evening, I filled in as the guest host of WTMJ At Night (formerly WTMJ Nights) on 620 WTMJ. You can listen to the show here as a commercial-free podcast.

I was joined by several terrific guests.

Dr. Ben Weston, chief health policy advisor for Milwaukee County, joined to discuss the County's new reckless driving dashboard (which you can see here).

Jeramey Jannene, president of Urban Milwaukee, joined to discuss upcoming local elections in Milwaukee, and President Biden’s visit to the city (and the announcement set to happen when he arrives).

Rob Henken, president of the Wisconsin Policy Forum, joined to talk about their new report on Milwaukee Public Schools and the upcoming referendum (see that report here).

Thanks for listening!
