Tuning in to a tell-all session

There are all sorts of rumors and speculations floating around concerning possible mayoral candidates the next time around. In an alert circulating about today’s ANC radio show on KO-OP radio, 91.7-FM, there’s a name new to me, although certainly not new in an Austin political context: Jackie Goodman. The blurb briefly recounts her service on the city council and then says that she’s “planning to become a candidate for Mayor in 2009.” The ANC radio Web site has a few podcasts from past shows but otherwise is low on content compared to what has been available in the past. This radio show has been one of the more successful outreach programs of the Austin Neighborhoods Council, beginning as a half-hour program and now stretching to an hour, which allows much more discussion. The guests are always informed, and today’s, in addition to Jackie Goodman, include two other former members of the council, Brigid Shea and George Humphrey. This panel won’t be the entire show, which runs from noon to one o’clock, but among the topics promised during the panel segment are insiders’ views of the workings of city hall, effective citizen participation, the municipal budget now under review, transportation issues, and speculation about Austin’s economic future. Will the show be as juicy as promised? One can only hope (and listen).
