Yesterday was the day for a joint interview with Craig Dirksen. The interview was about an hour and was largely cordial. As usual, WW is somewhat cryptic in is attitudes and questions were not particularly pointed. Fortunately or unfortunately, both Mr. Dirksen and I agree that transportation is the biggest problem in the SW Metro area. I said Metro was 5 years behind in planning for growth. Mr. Dirksen said it was due to public outreach.
WW seems to think Mr. Dirksen is not “a conservative”, but I suspect that is more their attitude of their own editorial policies.
I also stressed that Metro needs to do more about potential disaster planning and be more of a leader on climate change. I noted that I would bring a rural representation to the urban slanted Metro council.
Their closing question was about our favorite food cart. Mine was always Taste of India on 5th.
