New year and a new episode. This week Adam and I (Josh) talk to Durham City mayor, Bill Bell. After 16 years in office, Mayor Bell is retiring at the end of 2017 and we were fortunate enough to sit down with him and discuss his legacy and his part in shifting the culture and makeup of Durham over the last 40 years in politics. We talk gentrification, his legacy, disappointments, and where he see Durham heading into the future.
Shout out to Ms. Hattie Johnson, Durham city clerk, for scheduling our appointment with the mayor and being a gem of a person, as well as Hardworker for letting us use Born Homesick" as our theme song.
