What is the most local government-y thing you have done on vacation?

I regularly take pictures of bike racks and bike lanes in any city I visit looking for ideas to bring home to Jersey City.

If I was booking the guests for the GovLove podcast, I would book…

Pete Buttigieg (south bend mayor), Eric Garcetti, Chris Traeger himself, Mike Bloomberg

If you could only have wine OR chocolate for the rest of your life, which would you choose?


What’s one thing you want to do/see when you’re in Durham?

City leaders from across the country!  Also maybe BBQ

#ELGL19 will be a success in my book if this happens:

If we can all bring something back to our cities to make them just a little better.
