The Englewood Scammer Saga Continues! Plus, More Last-Minute Election News
It might not feel like it, but today is election day. So host Bree Davies and producer Paul Karolyi are sharing a juicy update on the scammer running unopposed for school board in Englewood and talking about what they’ll be watching for as the results come in tonight. Then, the trials over the 2019 killing of Elijah McClain took an unexpected turn last week, with one officer making the unusual move of taking the stand in his own defense. And finally, we respond to your questions and comments about food deserts, vegetarian and vegan restaurants, and trick-or-treat candy policies.
After we recorded the show yesterday, the Adams County jury delivered its verdict in the case against Aurora police officer Nathan Woodyard -- not guilty.
