I’m Homeless: Ron Schuler

For every mat on the floor of the Interfaith Winter Shelter there is a story of loss, and a story of hope. This week we are speaking with experts on homelessness in Bloomington, those who have studied the causes and effects of homelessness through firsthand experience. All week we bring you first hand accounts from residents of the Interfaith Wintershelter, and those working on an alternate system once the shelter closes April 1st.

Interchange – Democratic Primary Candidates for Monroe County Clerk

Play

Hosts Trish Kerle and Doug Storm are joined in the studio by Linda Robbins and Ashley Cranor to discuss their reasons for wanting to be elected to the Office of the Clerk of Monroe County.

Linda Robbins is the incumbent for this position, becoming Monroe County Clerk in January of 2011.  And Ashley Cranor, the primary challenger, is currently Grants Administrator for the Monroe County
Commissioners Office.

For this program we discover just what the County Clerk does; we find out the candidates’ qualifications and get a bit of their biographies; and we find out what they have in mind for this term
should they be elected to the position. Along the way we ask some questions about current programs and policies in order to get a sense of the effectiveness of the office administration.

Key topics are the contentious election result for the last two cycles and the Indiana Voter ID law and how politics becomes policy.
