  • Host Ryan Coonerty talks with recently elected NewDEAL mayors Brandon Whipple (Wichita, KS), Leirion Gaylor Baird (Lincoln, NE), and Steven Reed (Montgomery, AL) about election strategies and adjusting to their roles as mayors, including how their families are adapting and what issues are on the forefront of their agendas since taking on the position
  • The three leaders talk about the importance of bipartisanship, being from blue cities in majority red states, and how to gain support through focusing on local, community issues like education, healthcare, and workforce development.
  • Gaylor Baird talks about the impact of the NewDEAL on her campaign, and how other leaders' ideas have encouraged her own: "People here lift up my sense of what's possible for my community and for me as a public servant."
