Regionally Speaking, Monday, March 9, 2020

city of Michigan City website

Today:  We continue our conversations with newly-elected Mayors in northwest Indiana communities with Michigan City Mayor Duane Parry (R).  Voters elected him in last November's general election to succeed Ron Meer.  He talks about the work that his administration is doing to put the city on a more fiscally-sound basis and of projects going into 2020.  They include re-establishing a popular summertime event that was cancelled in recent years. Indiana Youth Insititute president and CEO Tami Silverman talks about the latest  "Kids Count Data Book" just out for 2020 and where Hoosier youth stand in the statistics.  And we revisit our conversation with Indiana Passenger Rail Alliance president Steve Coxhead, about efforts to send the topic of an Indiana Rail Commission on to a General Assembly summer study committee. 

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
