The Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners has named an interim replacement for Commissioner Ella Scarborough’s seat. Wilhelmenia Rembert, a former commissioner, was unanimously picked Tuesday. We’ll talk about Rembert’s history on the board and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board.

The county approved almost $60 million in federal pandemic funding this week. We’ll talk about who will benefit from the money.

A plan to remake the Brookhill Village property in Charlotte’s South End has fallen apart. We’ll talk about why the project fell apart and what this means for affordable housing in Charlotte.
