New Film Depicts Disappearance of Wetlands in Southern Louisiana; and Mitt Romney Surrogate Discusses Economic Issues
Good morning, Welcome to Radioactivity. Iâm Rob Lorei. Coming up weâll talk with a surrogate for Mitt Romney. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is in town today for several campaign events, but he wasnât able to make it over to WMNF. So weâll hear from a surrogate.
But first weâll talk about whatâs happening to the shoreline in the upper Gulf of Mexico with
Filmmakers Elizabeth Coffman, Ted Hardin and Gulf Restoration Network's (GRN) Cathy Harrelson. They are here to talk about the film "Veins in the Gulf," which is showing tonight at Studio 620 in St. Petersburgâ¦. FMI
Hereâs an excerpt from the filmâs trailerâ¦..
Republican candidate Mitt Romney is in the Tampa Bay area today. He spoke this morning in St. Petersburg. In about a half hour heâll be holding a $10,000 a person meet and greet at the Avila Country Club. And later heâll speak at a luncheon at Avila--- where the ticket price is $2500 per personâ¦â¦
The Romney campaign offered a surrogate to WMNF in place of having an actual interview with the former Massachusetts Governor and Bain Capital executive. The surrogate is incoming Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford who is a Republican from Pasco County. With the news yesterday that JP Morganâs chief executive Jamie Dimon will get a pay increaseâdespite the fact the company announced last week that it had lost $2 Billion dollars in risky derivatives tradingâI asked Weatherford whether we needed more regulation of banksâto prevent them from gambling money on derivatives.
Right after this interview will open the phone lines for your comments.
