It’s been busy at KBIA the last few days, and figures to stay that way for a bit.
KBIA plans to play host to a couple dozen local and statewide candidates for public office leading up to the election, for a series of in-depth interviews. And it’s already started. We’ll roll them out here and at KBIA.org as soon as we get them.
We kick it off with an interview with former a state auditor, Susan Montee, who is challenging incumbent Republican Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder in the Nov. 6th election.
In the interview, Montee talks about changes she would make to the structure of the office, drawing from her experience as auditor. She also discusses the perception that the lieutenant governor’s office has little power in state government, and how she would make sure to have an impact in the role. She also says, working with a governor of the same party allows the lieutenant governor to be much more productive.
