John Rooks, who was a player for NCCU during his College years, has always felt that a lot of folks are not having a Voice in what is happening in Durham, NC... He is a proponent of Affordable Housing, and Economic Development that helps many parts of our great city...

He has been a true advocate for the youth here and has served on boards that have addressed this part of our community...A definite family man, Rooks won the Grit Award in 2016 for his work at bridging the gap between local communities and law enforcement and he was endorsed in his campaign by the People's Alliance...We look forward to hearing Rooks' view of Durham, what the campaign meant to him, and his plans for the future....

Religion has also played an important part in his life and we look forward at hearing more about this as well.

We will also be joined by Ira David Woods, fresh off another performance in Xmas 2017 as Scrooge and ready to star in another role in late January...This versatile and incredibly talented actor should be a fun and amazing interview...and who knows maybe we will even find out what his daughter Rachel is up to over in Hollywood....He is a definite theatrical fixture in the Triangle...
