“It’s friggin’ hot in here,” Mayor McDermott says while leaning over Ideas in Motion Founder, Chris Mahlmann, to flip on the car air conditioning. He pauses and looks to Mahlmann concerned, “I can say friggin’ right?”
The exchange gave an indication on the candid and light-hearted style of interview in a new series Ideas in Motion Media has launched called "Life on the Streets," featuring Northwest Indiana Leaders, set in a car as they travel through the communities in which they serve. Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott was the first featured and both Mahlmann and McDermott realized how to take advantage of the setting they were in. http://www.nwindianalife.com/community/government-community-resources/65632-life-on-the-streets-of-hammond-featuring-mayor-thomas-mcdermott-jrYou can also watch this video on YouTube here!
