Mayoral Candidate Nile Arena

Play

The ringleader of the whimsical voter participation advocacy group Grassroots Goofballs turns serious with his announcement he’s running for Bloomington’s top political office as an independent. A passionate lover of books and a dedicated student of theater, Arena hopes to bring the perspective of those just turning 30 to the civic forum. He claims it’s his — and our — duty to engage fully in a participatory democracy. Arena must gather 500-plus signatures by July 15th in order to appear on the November ballot.

Host Michael Glab goes one-on-one with Bloomington’s most fascinating people every Thursday at 5:30pm. Tune in for a bonus feature, Big Talk Extra, every Monday on the Daily Local News at 5:00pm for added chat from the previous week’s show.
