040: Clarkston's Mayor Ted

Ted Terry is not your average Joe - from being a self-proclaimed Berniecrat in Georgia, to his characteristic 'protest beard' - Mayor Ted of Clarkston has become a small town icon. Home to a large refugee resettlement community, Clarkston has been  called the "Ellis Island of the South" and is host to a remarkable blend of cultures that Mayor Ted hopes can serve as an inspiration to diverse communities everywhere. Tune in to hear all about the young and rambunctious Mayor Ted, his plans for Clarkston, and more about how you can get involved in helping refugees right here in Atlanta.
