The Wake UP with Clark Williams: Kentucky state politics are heating up

Original Radio Broadcast Feb. 17, 2019

Recently, the 2019 KY General Assembly got under way and Owensboro State Rep. Jim Glenn’s election victory was contested in the State House.

Today, we’ll hear from Rep. Glenn’s attorney, Anna Whites, to get the latest on this proceeding.

We will also discuss Senate Bill 3, which would take some power out of the hands of local school councils.

KY State Sen. Reggie Thomas

We’ll hear from State Senator Reggie Thomas, who was vocal in his opposition of this bill that has passed the Senate and we’ll hear from Dr. Roger Cleveland from KSU to see how the bill’s provisions would impact recruitment and the hiring of teachers and principals of color. 

The WakeUP is made possible by Central KY’s Waffle House franchisee LexiDan Foods.
