First hour: Assemblymember Demond Meeks on the 2024-2025 state budget

Second hour: Discussing CITY Magazine's June 2024 issue

We continue our series of conversations about the 2024-2025 state budget. This hour, we’re joined by Assemblymember Demond Meeks. He shares his perspectives on what was included in the budget, what wasn’t, and his priorities – from housing, to public safety, to education, and more. Our guest:

  • Assemblymember Demond Meeks, District 137

Then in our second hour, we preview the latest issue of CITY Magazine. In 1892, Kodak was incorporated in Rochester — forever solidifying its legacy as the "Photo City." While that legacy has taken on many forms over the last century, Rochester remains a region rooted in visuals. CITY’s June issue honors and focuses on the "Photo City" — its past, present and future. We discuss it with our guests:

  • Leah Stacy, editor-in-chief of CITY Magazine
  • Ryan Williamson, director of strategy and operations for CITY Magazine
  • Patrick Hosken, arts writer for CITY Magazine
  • Clay Patrick McBride, artist and educator
  • Richard Colón, photographer and curator of Behind the Glass Gallery
  • Brian Wright, co-founder of CineStill Film
  • Brandon Wright, co-founder of CineStill Film
