On This Week with Bob Mueller... The panel of experts includes syndicated talk show host Steve Gill and newly re-elected Metro Councilman at Large Jerry Maynard. We examine the results of the Metro election. Mayor Karl Dean won re-election easily, all five Metro Council members at Large were re-elected and 17 incumbents in all return to the council.
Voters also overwhelmingly approved to continue operating the state fairgrounds, home of the state fair, fairgrounds race track and flea market.
The election was not a referendum against the mayor despite his opposition to keeping the fairgrounds operating.
We also discuss the debt ceiling crisis being averted with an agreement being reached. Tea Party supporters appear to be the big winners, not backing down from their "no tax increase" stands. The issue is now finished until after the presidential election.
We also discuss Metro and the state's request to be waived out of the No Child Left Behind program and its requirements.
