Host Ryan Coonerty talks with Lincoln, NE Councilmember Leirion Gaylor Baird about the example she seeks to set as a public servant, whether to inspire her children with a picture of female leadership or to encourage the next generation of elected leaders to continue serving Lincoln. They also talked about her run for mayor this year, the support she got from women across the aisle and across the city during her first run for office, and how local government is a hub for experimentation and innovation.
