Jack Craver of the Austin Politics Newsletter joins us to talk about the politics of a growing city. Jack has a focus on city government, transportation and land use. He describes how big city projects are created and presented to the public. He explains the dynamics between the mayor, city manager and the city council and Austin’s housing shortage. He describes the tension between political opponents on the topic of housing development and transportation. We talk about the practical entry points for people to understand and influence local policy decisions and much more.
