As part of our 2018 November Election coverage, we recently had Chico City Council Member Andrew Coolidge on the show to talk about policing and homelessness in Chico, what he learned running unsuccessfully (at first) for elected office, and what it’s like for him to be on the council.
He also opened up about the loss of his father in one of the wildfires plaguing the north state. This episode was deep and informative, but just our luck it was shot just days before Chico’s recent… let’s say lively… city council meeting.
