Ep. 50: 11/7/21 Kelby Cumpston

November 7, 2021

Jeremy joins the pod to catch up with Kelby, who has continued to pay close attention to Bloomington City Council since his ward 7 run last year. He's started a blog called BloNotes where he provides commentary on the upcoming agendas. He fills us in on the goals of the blog, and we chat about some of the recent issues before the council: filling the ward 6 seat and sewer repairs. We also talk about affordable housing, a many-faceted problem in which he has considerable expertise. And of course we mention Strong Towns... a lot.
