Community Conversations and its powerful guests discuss issues of concerns to our community and lifestyle. From politics, healthcare, social media, justice to education. If it impacts our community, I am talking about it and bringing solutions with my guests experts. Past guests have included, but not limited to, President Barack Obama, Governors- Bob McDonnell, Tim Kaine, Mark Warner, L Douglas Wilder, Dr. Cornell West, Tavis Smiley, First Lady Michelle Obama, Fitness Guru Donna Richardson-Joyner, Comedian Chris Rock, Comedian Sheryl Underwood, and Actress Angela Bassett.

Today’s guests Varina District Supervisor Tyrone Nelson, Deputy County Manager for Administration/Henrico County Joe Casey and Fairfield District School Board Member Lamont Bagby will discuss the 4% meals tax on prepared food for the county. In fact, this will be a referendum on the voter ballot next Tuesday, November 5. If you vote “yes” Henrico County will collect approximately $18 million a year in operational costs and improvements for schools.
