Minnesota City Councilman Discusses the Nation-healing Effort He is Leading on WCCO Radio (Jan. 26)

Bloomington City Councilman Jon Oleson has launched what he hopes will be a nation healing effort. He feels the only way things are going to get done—and head in a positive direction in this country—is if people start talking to each other and working together, rather than bickering and taking sides in a partisan debate.

Oleson is hoping to encourage dialogue amongst people of all ages and backgrounds through his recently published book, What Legacy Are We Giving Our Kids?  He was interviewed about the book on WCCO Radio in Minneapolis the evening of Jan. 26.
