Thursday on Political Rewind: While partisanship continues to drive almost every aspect of how Congress operates today, at the local level, political leaders are more likely to be practical problem solvers dealing with issues their neighborhoods are experiencing every day.

Today, we talk with mayors of three Georgia cities to get an up-close look at how their communities are coping with the problems of our times. These issues are broad and ranging, from the progress of COVID vaccination programs to the ongoing struggle for racial justice in their cities.
