He also says that the program is produced by Radio Center of the University of Florida in cooperation with the Altrusa Club of Gainesville. In answer to what the biggest problems facing the state in the next ten years Faircloth mentions the need for a top flight educational system and the necessity to fight organized crime. Faircloth talks about the attorney general's role in fighting organized crime.
