This morning, I was privileged to be part of a panel on KNPR’s “State of Nevada” radio show, discussing trust in government, or the lack thereof. Rich Harwood, founder of the Institute for Public Innovation, advocated a positive message that change is possible if people get engaged and leaders show they can listen and act on matters of public concern.
Along with Assemblywoman Dina Neal, Victory Missionary Baptist Church pastor Robert Fowler and Gard Jameson, chairman of the Interfaith Council, we spent 90 minutes discussing the causes and cures of public apathy. And the surprise star turn at the end — featuring former state Sen. Joe Neal, Dina Neal’s dad — didn’t hurt at all.
The show re-airs tonight at 8:30 p.m. on KNPR-FM 88.9, and is well worth a listen, if I do say so myself. Or, you can click here, where the audio version of the show will be posted.
