Hello Sippers! Your favorite hosts are back with a recap on what's been going down since our last episode, and it has been ALOT. The city has seen a lot of new changes in leadership. We have a new Mayor, new Treasurer, new Alderpeople, and new Board of Education members. We break down what these changes mean for Saint Louis and talk about some of the new initiatives that are taking place at the city level with an emphasis on items high up on Mayor Tishaura Jones's agenda. We also give you our take on some of the initiatives that we find the most interesting.

But that's not all!

On Community Spotlight we talk with newly appointed City Treasurer Adam Layne, previous Deputy Cheif of Staff to then Treasurer Jones, and a former Board of Education member. We get to know Treasurer Layne and learn about his journey to public service from college, to the classroom, and ultimately to city hall.

Get ready to sip all of the new tea with us in this episode!
