    EPISODE 270: Councilman David Marks discusses zoning, housing and being a Republican in era of Trump

    It’s another election season and as we begin our amazing merger of WNST.net and Baltimore Positive this fall – you’re going to love what is about to happen to this website – we’re about to bring forward a wide variety of guests and thought leaders and topics as we navigate all of the aspects of life during a pandemic and what it means to vote in our country. Because we haven’t been able to sit down and eat a proper crab cake at Faidley’s at Lexington Market or have some chicken and waffles at State Fare in Catonsville with our guests, we have been doing one longish episode rather than our customary three shorter blocks of conversation.

    The most important message we want to send to all of our friends and listeners is to exercise your right as an American citizen and vote this November.

    Because we respect all legitimate viewpoints and love to present facts and alternate points of view on how to attack issues and solve problems, we wanted to reach to Republican Councilman David Marks, who represents a huge chunk of folks right under the WNST-AM 1570 radio tower from Charles Street on the west to the Harford County line on the east, encompassing communities such as Towson, Loch Raven Village, Carney, Oak Crest Village, Fullerton, Perry Hall, and Kingsville.

    We talked a lot about his background in zoning and housing and life in Perry Hall, where Nestor lived and raised his son for a decade. And we talked about the world of Donald Trump and our many objections.

    Clearly, we voted in June. And we hope you are ready to vote again in November!

    We are all in this together and this is a time to educate, unite and keep each other safe. But we also have some extra time to read and learn and educate ourselves in many ways.

    We will continue to produce high-quality, intelligent conversations with wisdom from wise leaders as our citizens try to readjust to this pandemic during the summer at Baltimore Positive.

    Please subscribe to Baltimore Positive and stay with us.

    We’ll try to keep you cool.
