The City of Mount Vernon and the highly publicized Civil War in City Hall has become to subject of a series of investigative reports in the Journal News/lohud. Journal News/lohud investigative reporters Jon Bandler and Jorge Fitz-gibbon will be guests on this week’s edition of “Above the Fold,” WVOX’s radio show to discuss their recent investigation on Mount Vernon’s political infighting and operational dysfunction.
The reporters will be taking calls at 914-636-0110 on their report. “Ruining Mount Vernon” appeared online and in print this past Sunday, detailing how the political stalemate among Mayor Richard Thomas, the city council and city comptroller Maureen Walker, has stymied the city. From the contaminated soil at Memorial Field to the city’s refusal to respond to basic public information requests, Fitz-gibbon and Bandler unearthed details about the city’s problems, reports Lohud.
“Above the Fold,” hosted by Journal News/lohud investigations editor Frank Scandale, kicks off at 11:08 am, Wednesday, on WVOX 1460 on the AM dial, or livestream at WVOX.com.
