Episode 159: Counting Recounts

THE ROTUNDA – Ion Sancho, a longtime Leon County supervisor of elections, calls for reform in Florida’s election laws to prevent the recurring nightmare of problematic recounts from happening. In an extended interview, Sancho tells Gomes some of the problems that plagued Brenda Snipes, the outgoing supervisor elections for Broward County, couldn’t be avoided under current statutes. Sancho also blames the state for approving ineffective voting machines in Palm Beach County. Gomes also checks in on a statewide listening tour by the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition. The group’s executive director Desmond Meade explains how he's working to help give back full citizenship rights to Florida’s 1.4 million ex-felons who were convicted and completed sentences for past crimes, as outlined in the voter-approved Amendment 4.

Episode 111: Relapse Capital

THE ROTUNDA -We focus on Delray Beach where a decade ago it was seen as a haven for recovering addicts but thanks to a rise in new drug rehab scams, the city is trying to fight off a new title of ‘Relapse Capital.’ The episode features compelling audio from Gomes’ first reporting series in Delray Beach back in 2008.  It was a time when local officials didn’t even want talk about growing crisis. The episode also features the city’s current Mayor, Cary Glickstein, and State Attorney Dave Aronberg as they call attention to the opioid epidemic.
