I have to hand it to Rep. Jon Brien – while I think his politics are repugnant, he’s always a good sport about answering my questions when I ask him about either his involvement with ALEC or his decision to bring his community to brink of bankruptcy. So last week, when he asked if he could turn the tables on me and interview me when he filled in for Matt Allen on WPRO, it was easy to say yes. Here’s the segment:
We had a great conversation about his role with ALEC, the reasons for and against the failed supplemental property tax for Woonsocket and the recent New York Times op/ed that tied the two together.
In the second hour, we touched upon everything from marriage equality to organized labor and how conservative the General Assembly is … we also took calls that were mostly unsympathetic to my progressive points of view. It makes for some good radio. Here it is:
Thanks Jon Brien, Matt Allen and WPRO … it was a lot of fun!
