Linda Gorton, mayor of Lexington, brings a unique and stabilizing influence to her city given her professional background. She is a registered nurse, having worked on the frontlines of healthcare. In this hour-long Zoom chat with long-time local journalist and Power Poll correspondent Tom Eblen, Gorton discusses her administration's coordinated response to the pandemic, discusses when she thinks the city might be prepared to re-open, and touches on the need for everyone at this moment to help their family members, neighbors, and friends. While recognizing the severity of the crisis, Gorton brings a sunny disposition to the interview that viewers will find encouraging in these dark times.
