Rep. Cluster Howard, Mayor Fischer’s Budget, Beshear vs. Labor Cabinet, & Fundraising Reports

May 1, 2019

This week we invited Rep. Cluster Howard of the 91st District to the show!  We talked about how he represents a district that has very different county identities, the impact of personal relationships on legislating, and how Democrats can be more competitive at the federal level in places like Eastern Kentucky.

Before speaking with Rep. Howard, we talked about Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer's proposed budget which includes $25.5 million in cuts, the case Attorney General Andy Beshear is making against the Labor Cabinet in his suit involving the subpoenas of teachers protesting in Frankfort, and all the gubernatorial candidates 30-day prior fundraising reports.
