Nate Bell, former AR legislator, political consultant, government transparency activist, 10-18-23, Part 2: OTOH episode 52
In part 2 of our conversation with Nate Bell, Glen and April explore with him his work on the Freedom of Information law in Arkansas, his ideas on improving good government, and his suggested remedies for the extreme political polarization currently seen in our state and the nation. While describing himself as "bull-headed" in his political views, he values facts and is prepared to hear others who can provide legitimate information that may support an alternative view. His assessment of Arkansas's political environment now is one that has been unduly influenced by people on the extreme ends of political ideology, which he attributes to our primary system. He offers several concrete suggestions for alternatives that would lead to governmental actions more in line with the majority of Arkansans.
