Today:   a conversation with one of the two Democratic Party primary election candidates for Indiana House District 3 -- Gary community builder Jessica Renslow. Renslow and Gary Common Councilwoman Ragen Hatcher will be on the May 8th election ballot, seeking the party nomination for the seat vacated when State Representative Charlie Brown retired.  We reached out to Ms. Hatcher with an invitation to join us, but have not yet received a response before this program.
