  • Abstract
    Charlotte, North Carolina, political operative Allen Bailey shares his thoughts on politics and community. Bailey's clearest commentary is on the fractured state of the Democratic Party in his city; he also shares his thoughts on school consolidation. Researchers with a previous understanding of this issue in Charlotte and of "the Charter" will get the most from the interview.
