Good morning, Welcome to Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up today- itâ€™s time to prepare county budgets. Weâ€™ll talk with the chairman of the Pinellas County Commission Ken Welch about the upcoming budget processâ€”as well as the referendum on mass transit that will be on next yearâ€™s ballotâ€¦..
And later- the takeover of American Agriculture by giant corporations. Itâ€™s happening. What does it mean for farmers, consumers, and people concerned about food safety. Weâ€™ll talk with Wenonah Hauter- author of the new book Foodopolyâ€¦
But first- four listener comments about last Fridayâ€™s show. We were talking with a local activist with the gun control group- Momâ€™s Demand Action. Hereâ€™s what four listeners had to say.
Since 2007 local governments have been cutting services and laying off staff as a result of the recession. There are signs that the economy is beginning to turn around. This week Pinellas County is getting public input about the county budgetâ€¦ and weâ€™re joined now by the chair of the Pinellas County Commission, Ken Welch.
