The following is the interview of Mayor Rudy Wright on 1290 WHKYam Radio's First talk program with Hal Row.
WHKY does not archive these programs and make them available to the public, so I am putting this important public interview up under Fair Use guidelines.
Segment 1 - This segment is about the Hickory Jaycees no longer supporting Hickory Alive next year. The Mayor doesn't address the issue. He does talk about the reduced hours for Oktoberfest.
Segment 2 - More on the events Downtown. Mayor talks about kids Downtown. "Youth, 15 and over, and kids, 14 and under, are running loose over an eight block area." "Children are running loose."
Segment 3 - Hal talks about the street layout mess in Hickory and some things a friend brought up. Talks about Highland at Lenoir-Rhyne and Clement Boulevard. Hal asks about the Bond Referendum.
Segment 4 - Hal and the Mayor talk about the Professional Senior Golf tournament getting ready to take place here in Hickory and the City's involvement. Hal talks about another person that believes that we need to get serious about speeding in Hickory.
