LISTEN: ‘It’s Not That Simple’ Sept. 13 (AUDIO)
It's the Sept. 13 edition of 'It's Not That Simple' with co-hosts Ed Abrahams (Great Barrington Select Board member) and Pedro Pachano (Great Barrington Planning Board member). You get to listen to the program before it airs this Friday morning at 9:05. Audio provided below.
Ed and Pedro examine issues facing Great Barrington and explore the question, “why don’t they just fix it?” They discuss the complexities, the competing interests, the less obvious costs or consequences, and the missing information that explains why It’s Not That Simple. They do their best to steer clear of opinion and to just point out the issues that make the problems more complex than they might appear.
Although both men serve on elected town boards, they are not speaking for those boards or for the town in any capacity. They are only representing themselves on the radio. The program airs every other Friday morning at 9:05 on WSBS. The talk show covers town issues that one may think may be corrected by a common sense solution but isn't always the case for a variety of reasons.
On this edition of the show Ed and Pedro dive in deep about the Selectboard and its function. The gentlemen invited Town Moderator (and retired lawyer) Michael Wise back to the show to give us all a civics lesson and more. So let's not wait any longer let's check out the program.
