What Matters

hosted by Matthew Laos

“What Matters will be discussing the relevant Issues of the Day from the Economy to Entertainment to politics to education to the arts with great guests discussing “What Matters” and how it impacts our daily lives.”

Carolyn’s note:  Just found out about a new radio talk show hosted by young Democratic activist Matthew Laos. It’s on KVOI The Voice 1030 AM  on the dial, every Saturday from 5 to 6 p.m.

I just listened to Matt’s two previous shows (Aug. 27 and Sept. 3). He interviewed economists, educators, politicians (i. e. Ward 6 Councilman Steve Kovachik) and even former radio talk show host John C. Scott (former campaign manager for Pima County Attorney Barbara LaWall, who recently won her Dem primary on August 30, 2016).

Podcasts here: http://www.kvoi.com/podcast-window/?yourKey=1363784

Good luck to Matt on his new radio show.  Let us know “what matters” in Tucson and Southern Az.

Carolyn’s note: I’ve been helping publicize this worthy event for several years now, starting when I was with the Tucsoncitizen.com.  Please call in to the radio show this Thursday and Friday to help donate $ to purchase these bikes.  I was there last year to witness the give-away on a very wet day in December, but kids and their families stood patiently in line for a long time in the rain to get their valuable bikes.

Donate to Bike in a Box

For 5 years now numerous Tucsonans have donated $ to buy bikes for 500 underprivileged students in Tucson.  This project has been spearheaded by community activist Jesse Lugo, who ran unsuccessfully for the Ward 5 seat on the Tucson City Council in the Democratic primary of 2001.

All info about this program at www.lugocharities.com.  The give-away of these bikes is on December 13 at 11 a.m., with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Elks Lodge, 1800 N. Oracle Rd. in Tucson.
