We'll also explore proposals for change, and seek feedback from local leaders and community members on what can be done to restore trust in City Hall.Trust in Local Government, WVXU's Public Integrity Project will analyze our council-manager form of government and the charter amendments designed to reinforce ethical standards at City Hall; take a historical look at corruption in Cincinnati government; talk with the candidates for Cincinnati mayor and continue with an ongoing series of features, interviews and candidate profiles.

On Cincinnati Edition's weekly news review:

WVXU reporter Becca Costello joins us to explain the latest criminal indictment involving a member of Cincinnati city council, this time Wendell Young.

She also discusses some of the ballot measures before Cincinnati voters in May.

Meanwhile, at the University of Cincinnati, a new head coach is named for the embattled men's basketball program. Wes Miller arrived in Clifton this week from UNC-Greensboro to replace the fired John Brannen who lasted just two seasons leading the Bearcats. Brannen was fired following the departure of multiple players from the program.

The Athletic reporter Justin Williams and Enquirer columnist Jason Williams talk about it.

And what will life be like after the pandemic as it relates to health care? Enquirer reporter Anne Saker joins us for that conversation.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
