First hour: Candidates for Rochester City Council, part 7

Second hour: The fall of Harvey Weinstein, and abuse of power in the workplace

Can Rochester lure Amazon? What's the best way to improve city schools? Those are just some of the questions facing the next City Council, and we'll sit down with three more of the candidates:

  • Andrew Hollister, Republican and Reform Parties
  • Pam Davis, Working Families Party
  • Matt Juda, Working Families and Women's Equality Parties

Harvey Weinstein's fall has reignited conversations about abuse of power, and how men in power tend to be protected in various ways. We'll discuss a range of related issues: how employment agreements can impact victims; what recourse victims have; how to change the culture of protection for predators. Our guests:

  • Beth Cordello, chair of the employment law practice at Pullano & Farrow
  • Barbara LeSavoy, director of the women and gender studies program at the College at Brockport
  • Mary Jo Marino, manager of outreach and education at RESTORE Sexual Assault Services
