How Northern Kentucky Fixed Its Corruption Problem
The previous decade saw significant corruption cases and implementation of reform across Northern Kentucky. Former Kentucky Auditor Adam Edelen, who led that office from 2011 to 2015, became a regular presence in the region following embezzlement cases with Dayton, Ky., public schools and Covington City Hall.
Edelen also led calls for reforms to the way the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport is operated by the Kenton County Airport Board, reshaping the appointment process and being more inclusive to the broader region.
As part of Trust in Local Government: WVXU's Public Integrity Project, Edelen joins Cincinnati Edition to revisit those stories and to discuss ways governments can heal and rebuild public trust in the wake of scandal and controversy.
Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
