On this June 3rd edition of WNRN’s Sunday Morning Wake-Up Call, Rick Moore talks with Bob Gibson, a political writer for the Daily Progress, about the decades-old issue of Charlottesville and Albemarle merging several of their public services. The idea is that certain issues such as poverty and unemployment cannot be solved by either locality’s government alone, and need to team up to tackle them. How far would a merger go?
Gibson also comments on yesterday’s Democratic candidate nominations for city council. Satyendra Huja, Holly Edwards and Mayor David Brown were selected for the Democratic ticket for this fall’s election – why were these three chosen out of the five candidates? How do they stand on the issue of county-city mergers? Find out, only on the Wake-Up Call.
