Regionally Speaking, Wednesday, September 26, 2018


Today:    We begin our series on the Lake County November 6th general election ballot, with the only public school district referendum listed this time.   Lake Ridge New Tech Schools Superintendent Sharon Johnson-Shirley talks about her district's request for support on operating expenses and construction, renovation and improvements.  Lake Ridge is located in unincorporated Calumet Township, outside the city of Gary.

Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson was in Valparaiso today for another in her series of "candidate schools," to better prepare candidates for public office ahead of the November 6th election.  She explains the program, and is also talking about the importance of being registered to vote.  October 6th is the deadline for Hoosiers to register with their local election and voter registration offices or online at  Lawson's website.

And we have another edition of "Green Fleet Radio," supported by South Shore Clean Cities.  Host Carl Lisek talks today with an autogas fleet development staff member from ICOM North America.

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
