The Craig Fahle Show

Podcast 06.11.14: US Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, Allen Park Mayor & Michigan Seniors Panel

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Today on the show, Craig speaks with the Detroit News' Washington bureau reporter David Shepardson about the impact of U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's primary loss to a Tea Party candidate and how it could make measures toward immigration reform even less likely.

WDET's Laura Weber- Davis talks with U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack. He says the Midwest has a lot to offer, but there’s still more money to be made on agricultural exports.

Plus, a conversation with Allen Park Mayor Bill Matakas about issues in his community, and we kick off our "Aging Together" project that focuses on the issues and needs of Michigan's elderly. WDET, along with our project partners MLive and Model D Media, will spend several months examining the challenges we face as a region in providing more security, better health outcomes and a better quality of life for our senior population.
