What I Know Now with Dwight Henry

Join Kosta and his guest: Dwight Henry, Former Tennessee House State RepresentativeCookeville City Council Member, Mayor and Civil Servant to the State of Tennessee. Currently, Dwight serves as a Founding Member and Member at Large of IMPACT Leadership, an organization dedicated to the development and encouragement of civic minded leaders from underrepresented populations of our society to actively serve the betterment of the community and affect positive social change.

In this episode: As we go into the 2024 election year, tensions are high.  How do we come together as a community instead of two halves of a fractured system? Over a quarter of Cookeville residents are living in poverty. As someone that grew up in public housing and understands the struggles of the working poor, what’s your message to our state and local leaders on how we provide real opportunities for growth and development in this area? Cookeville is growing. Our city is changing whether we want to admit it or not. What is your advice to our local leaders and politicians that feel resistant to accommodating to those changes and think we can keep operating at the status quo?
