Critical Times Friday 12.7.18 6:00 PM

Written by on Friday, December 7, 2018

From WSLR 96.5 LPFM, this is the Critical Times. I’m Giulia Heyward. For the next half hour, we’ll be exploring local politics and grassroots activism, all happening in your backyard. A new Wendy’s has opened up on Lakewood Ranch, to the disappointment of residents in the area who are advocates of food justice. Construction on US 41 will have lasting impact on the mobility of Sarasota, and the potential addition of bike lanes could set a precedent in this community. Florida state representative, Jane Goodwin, and the Sarasota Brady Campaign have teamed up for a vigil this weekend raising awareness of gun violence. Maya Owitts give us the activist calendar of the week while Ed Foster is here with the Top of the News! It’s all coming up, very soon!
