No State Of The City Speech In Columbus This Year

Columbus Mayor Andy Ginther will not make the traditional state of the city speech this year. 

The mayor's office says Ginther instead will host five so-called “neighborhood conversations” starting later this month, featuring Ginther and a panel of speakers addressing specific topics. The mayor's office says he wants to give more information about those topics than is possible in a speech. Those interested in attending may register through the mayor's website. Activists protesting police violence against African-Americans held a demonstration outside of the spot where Ginther gave the speech last year. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
