Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind this week — for the week of May 13, 2019.
The Weekly Top 3 is a regular weekly segment on The Michael Dukes Show. The Show broadcasts on FacebookLive and via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6-8am. I join Michael weekly on Tuesday’s show, from 6:20-7am, for a discussion between the two of us about the three issues.
This week our Top 3 issues are these: 1) what is happening with the Conference Committee on the budget and where we are headed after it finishes its work (at 1:49), 2) a News-Miner op-ed editorializes on courage, yet shows none itself (22:52), and 3) we discuss a Rasmuson Board op-ed in the Anchorage Daily News which argues that the state needs more time to deal with budget cuts, even though it has had since 2013 to prepare (27:37).
The segment is at the YouTube clip above. For those that prefer the audio version, it is available on our Soundcloud page here. For this and other complete podcasts of The Michael Dukes Show, go to the Show’s Soundcloud page here.
