Mayor Vi Lyles talks to Mike Collins about the impending Republican Convention, troubles on City Council among some members, including accusations about ethics, and more troubles with the Hawthorne Street bridge. 

Once a month, Mayor Vi Lyles joins Charlotte Talks host Mike Collins to discuss the city's most important issues. 

The Republican National Convention is upon us. We hear about safety precautions. 

The Hawthorne Street bridge has been delayed again.  What’s the problem this time? 

There's tension on City Council among at least three members over allegations of possible alleged conflicts of interest. 

The cronavirus continues to impact us all. We get an update on how the city is managing the pandemic.
