Last week, the GovLove podcast reunited Gabe Klein, author of The Start-Up City and Leah Treat, director of the Portland Bureau of Transportation. The duo discussed working together under Mayor Emanuel in Chicago and Mayor Fenty in Washington, DC.

We invite you to take a listen to this episode and the 44 other episodes. You’ll hear about attracting veterans to local government, the story behind the creation of Cards Against Urbanity, a rebuttal to John Oliver’s take on special districts, and more.

Excited yet? If not, maybe this will help. This week ELGL member Taylor Huckaby from Bay Area Rapid Transit will discuss his motivation in writing the article, This Is Our Reality: Why I Couldn’t Hold Back About the Bay Area’s Real Transit Problem.
