WVXU senior political analyst Howard Wilkinson spoke with News Director Maryanne Zeleznik Monday morning about the latest court case in which five Cincinnati council members agreed to a settlement where, in effect, they admitted to breaking Ohio's Open Meetings Law, with their exchange of text messages last year. Wilkinson talked about how it might impact the city's mayoral race in 2021.

Howard Wilkinson joined the WVXU News Team after 30 years of covering local and state politics for The Cincinnati Enquirer. A native of Dayton, Ohio, Wilkinson has covered every Ohio governor’s race since 1974 as well as 12 presidential nominating conventions. His streak continued by covering both the 2012 Republican and Democratic conventions for 91.7 WVXU. Along with politics, Wilkinson also covered the 2001 Cincinnati race riots; the Lucasville Prison riot in 1993; the Air Canada plane crash at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport in 1983; and the 1997 Ohio River flooding. The Cincinnati Reds are his passion. "I've been listening to WVXU and public radio for many years, and I couldn't be more pleased at the opportunity to be part of it,” he says.
