UPDATE: Fudge, Jay Williams on Zack Reed Forum tonight

Fudge speaks on Voting Rights Act and Supreme Court tonight
Ex-Y-town mayor Jay Williams will also appear on Zack Reed show

Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, [D-11, Warrensville Heights] is scheduled to appear tonight on “The Forum with Zack Reed”. She is expected to talk about the Voting Rights Act and the pending Supreme Court case likely to determine its future. Fudge is the current chair of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Former Youngstown mayor Jay Williams, now the White House deputy director of the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, will also be on the show, to talk about sequestration and what it means to northeast Ohioans.

Fudge’s appearance likely trumps the show’s earlier plans to talk about the recently announced state takeover of the Cleveland school district. Reports indicate the state may be backing away from aspects of the usual takeover in order to give the Cleveland Transformation Plan a chance to work. The district’s voters passed a levy in November to fund the plan for four years.

Reed’s weekly show airs from 8-10PM Sundays on WTAM/1100 AM. Listeners can call in at 216.578.1100.
