Principles v. Expediency: The Dilemmas of a Local Elected Official

Our talk with City Council Member Christopher Taylor. After a mini-fracas involving emails and emoticons between Council Members, Taylor discusses with Bart and Jeanine how this small event speaks to the peaks and valleys of public service. Now that the dust has settled and the small matter seems to have blown over, the conversation turns to the role of the representative and his approach to ethical governance. This lively and fascinating discussion was recorded Thursday, July 2, 2009.
