Dakota Free Press Podcast #10 is ready for your earbuds! Aberdeen City Council northwest district candidate Tom Black sits down to talk with the blog. Black talks the city’s wise choice to choose long-term planning over public sentiment and avoid signing up for rural water. Black rejects fear of immigrants and says new residents have already boosted our workforce and economy and are essential to Aberdeen’s future growth. Plus, Black talks about bringing films and culture to Aberdeen and getting pigeons out!

But first, co-host Spencer Dobson and I also talk about chickens and swastikas and Aberdeen, Jackley and Krebs at the Rapid City hate fest, and how the only people who stand to benefit from Trumpcare are the rich people who get the tax cuts and the smart Democrats who campaign to protect everyone else from this awful, awful bill.
