#38 - Re-visiting small town drama and small town politics (Guest: Derek Clevenger Mayor of Aumsville)

Curtis & Jordan with our very special returning guest Derek Clevenger Mayer of Aumsville discuss small town politics. We had a great time catching up on things a few towns over and learning more about how small towns are run. Derek is very honest and that fits in well with this podcast where we encourage testing what might be called normal. He has some very cool things he has worked to accomplish with honest advice for those that may not know what they can do to help their own towns. We shockingly skipped shower thoughts this week as we got caught up in our conversation. We did still have a few laughs.If you like the music check out the artist here: theearthonfireIntro song links: Spotify Apple MusicPlease subscribe to us on YouTube and join us live for our weekly recording!Follow us on InstagramFollow us on Facebook for the easiest way find us live (YouTube Links will be posted there)Links discussed in episode:Derek’s Facebook PageHero Politician Shuts Down Boomer by Saying “okay boomer”
