Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott Jr. discusses the challenges of leading a city amid a public health crisis in the latest episode of our podcast, “Wonks at Work.”

Scott tells host Craig Wilson about his decision to issue a mask mandate for Little Rock at a time when there was not yet a state mask mandate, and to extend the citywide mandate after the state mandate was recently lifted. He also discusses the importance of health care to an economy and how addressing health disparities played a major role in policy efforts over the past year.
