Wednesday, June 10, 2020

Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles joins us talks about the police response to recent protests, her business recovery program in the shadow of COVID-19 and where things stand with the Republican National Convention.

Charlotte has seen another month full of closed businesses and services due to the coronavirus, a lifting of some restrictions and a continued rise in cases of COVID-19.

Meanwhile, the last two weeks have been full of unrest and protests after the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer and criticisms of the leaders of Charlotte for their response to protesters.

And the fate of the Republican National Convention seems to change daily.

Guest:

Vi Lyles, mayor of Charlotte
