Welcome to the first 2014 edition of the SAGA Pod. Good news! After a month off and time spent tinkering, I still can’t do this thing properly! Like, I forgot to record an intro. But you’ll figure out pretty quickly that I’m talking to City Councilman Philip Kingston about the city manager search. He gives great insight into the process, what’s going on behind closed doors (like why he wasn’t allowed to ask questions of the candidates during the first round of interviews!), and why he’s hopeful this is no longer a dog-and-pony show. Also: We talk about why running a city like a business isn’t always a good thing, why I think the mayor is going to run in the next election after all, and why Kingston isn’t so sure my logic makes sense.
Happy ear time.
