The Vexatious Requester of Gregg Township, with Michelle Grove



The Vexatious Requester of Gregg Township

Ken’s guest is Michelle Grove, a local political activist from Gregg Township near State College. Imagine a local government out of control. Imagine the sparks when it meets a regular citizen, affectionately known colloquially as “the vexatious Right-to-Know requester of Gregg Township”. Then there are the listener-submitted questions regarding forced vaccinations, zoning, and pollution, plus a vignette about one ranger’s reaction to hunting endangered species.
