Shy, quiet District 14 Dallas City Councilman Philip Kingston stops by world SAGA pod headquarters to discuss his ongoing opposition to the Trinity Toll Road -- including, but not limited to, bashing the mayor and his "dream team" of architects and urban planners. We also discuss the new PAC co-founded by D Magazine Group leader and D Magazine editor-in-chief Wick Allison, and its efforts to back politicians for city council who support restoration of urban neighborhoods by replacing and rerouting I-345 and I-30. We then touch on what the city could learn from DISD and its comphrensive plan. And, oh yeah -- we talk about Kingston getting kicked out of a breakfast, on camera, by skittish rich folk. As always, please listen with your ears.

SAGA Pod / Learning Curve 02.05.15

Jim Schutze stops by the World Saga Pod Headquarters to discuss all things DISD: the current HR scandal, a huge DISD effort not covered by the local media (warning: I say bad words), and how Mike Miles has survived every attempt to run him out of town. Then we seque to talk about the squishy accounting system used by Mayor Mike Rawlings and endorsed by City Hall: where sitting officeholders can take as much money as they want from rich people, but the folks running against him are limited on how much they can take. Nice gig if you can get it! As always, please listen with your ears.
