Politics Chat: Is Kevin Flynn A Shoo-in To Return To City Council?

Kevin Flynn made the announcement of his bid to return to council in 2021 on Dec. 1, 2020.

In 2017, Kevin Flynn decided not to run for re-election to Cincinnati City Council after four years as a self-described "watchdog" over the city's council-manager form of government. Now, watching as three council members have been charged with felony corruption charges, Flynn has decided to attempt a return to City Council in 2021.

There is no guarantee, but Flynn is looked on by most people as a formidable contender for an open seat on council.

WVXU Senior Politics Analyst Howard Wilkinson talked with News Director Maryanne Zeleznik about Flynn's history on council and who is supporting his bid to return as an independent council member.
