It’s been a week Democrats in Tippecanoe County and around the state would like to forget.
But pundits say there’s not much of a left-leaning pipeline of young candidates being groomed to run in future elections.
This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, we ask one prominent Democrat – Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski – whether he sees a coming generation of politicos in his party or whether more disappointment is in store.
Also on this week’s show, as Tippecanoe County considers a needle exchange program, the Lafayette Police Department’s street crimes unit has publicly worried about such a move bringing more drug users to the city. We ask Mayor Roswarski, a former officer himself, for his thoughts.
