"Ask the Mayor," a WFIU radio weekly program that gives the public direct access to four area mayors by email, phone and Twitter, is completing its first series of live road shows.

And for the first time, the program will be visiting Greencastle, the newest town to join the effort, at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1. The WFIU program will be recorded at The Swizzle Stick on the north side of the courthouse square.

Mayor Sue Murray will join host Stan Jastrzebski, a DePauw University graduate and one-time Banner Graphic reporter, for an hour on Monday.

The public is invited to drop by, bring questions and comments, and "Ask the Mayor" in person.

WFIU calls it "a kind of town hall meeting in a casual atmosphere." The program will be taped and WFIU will be broadcasting the best half-hour of the conversation at noon Wednesday, Oct. 3.

"Ask the Mayor" focuses on issues facing communities in central Indiana, and everything from potholes to tax policy is often covered in 30-minute interviews with the mayors of Terre Haute, Kokomo and Bloomington in addition to Greencastle.

WFIU radio can be found at 103.7 FM, Bloomington. Programming also airs over 95.1 FM in Terre Haute.
