In a short but candid interview with Mayor Kasim Reed, Rashad Richey, host of “Real Talk with Rashad Richey” asked probative questions about the Mayor’s handling of SNOWJAM 2014 and Medicaid Expansion in GA. There has been no lack of criticism for Mayor Reed’s preparation during last week’s snow storm. During Mayor Reed’s interview, Richey asked him about the infamous tweet, “Atlanta we’re ready for the snow”. The Mayor responded, “I wouldn’t send that tweet out again.” The Mayor also went on record and said he should have been more thoughtful about how he asked people to leave the city. A shift in the interview led Richey to ask about the Mayor’s ability to influence Governor Nathan Deal regarding his stance on Medicaid Expansion. Mayor Reed said he has not been vocal with Deal about Medicaid Expansion because the Governor has his opinion and it will not change. Here more of the interview
