Pancakes, Politics & Jazz on a Sunday Afternoon at Our Brothers Place

A different kind of event arrived in downtown Toledo on Sunday, August 27 at Our Brothers Place as guests enjoyed a breakfast buffet, a detailed discussion of current political issue and the music of vocalist Karen “Lady K” Harris – all within a single afternoon.

The afternoon began with music and pancakes … and eggs and sausage.

Then came the politics as a panel comprised of Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson and four City Council Members – District 1’s Tyrone Riley, District 4’s Yvonne Harper and At-Large Reps Larry Sykes and Kurt Young – addressed issues of concern to voters. The mayor, Sykes and Young are on the ballot in this year’s elections.

After brief addresses by the members of the panel, the audience posed questions on topics ranging from crime, to job creation, to voter suppression, to drinking water safety, among others. The spirited discussion offered the elected officials an opportunity to display their grasp of a range of pressing issues – and display they did.

The officials took turns not only presenting their own individual concerns and solutions to problems but also praising the other panelists’ efforts at uncovering ways to improve life for Toledo residents.

Harris took over the final hour of the event regaling the audience with her enthusiasm and vocal stylings.

Pancakes, Politics & Jazz was hosted Paul Hubbard, Keith Mitchell and The Sojourner’s Truth. Another such event at Our Brother’s Place is planned for mid-October, preceding the general election. For more information, email the hosts at oaul.hubbard@buckeye-express.com; keithlmitchell@hotmail.com or fletcherhword@gmail.com
