Karl Gehrke has invited me onto SDPB Radio’s Dakota Midday today to discuss our two successfully petition drives to place Referred Law 19 (incumbent protection plan) and Referred Law 20 (youth minimum wage). Karl is planning to interview me on the second segment of the show, starting around 12:20 p.m. Central, 11:20 a.m. Mountain. You can listen on FM or live online.
Gehrke doesn’t take call-in questions as they used to on Dakota Midday… which is actually fine with me. One decent interviewer like Gehrke can lead a conversation with a newsmaker like me along a more logical path than a string of questions from callers who may or may not be listening to the questions and answers that precede their question.
Nonetheless, I have noticed that Gehrke is open to suggestions for questions e-mailed by listeners prior to the show. If you’d like him to raise some specific issue about these referred laws or the petition process, send him an e-mail! Of course, you can also fire away with your questions right here in the comment section, and I’ll be happy to tell you what I can about Referred Law 19, Referred Law 20, and the work lots of South Dakotans did to put these bad laws to a public vote.
