February 28, 2018
We start the second hour with Andres Clemente and this weeks Movie Review. The main topic of conversation this morning “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri” is it as good as we have been led to believe? Listen to what Andres has to say.
In the last hour today I have the pleasure to meet for the first time Edison Broce Urriola. Edison is an aspiring young politician, currently the “Suplente” (substitute) for one of the presiding legislators. This means that when the legislator cannot attend the parliamentary sessions Edison will stand in this place. Edison was the proponent of the Recycling Law presenting it in 2014. After sitting dormant for a couple of years, it was revived and has now been passed into law. A young man passionate about making change.
