Speaking Municipally: Episode 127

· The Pulse
By Mack Male

In Episode 127 of Speaking Municipally, co-hosts Troy Pavlek and Mack Male were joined by Taproot co-founder Karen Unland to discuss the first round of People's Agenda listening sessions that wrapped up last week.

"It's been fascinating to hear what people have to say," Unland said. "Everybody is an expert in their own concerns. We heard from a bunch of real people who really care about their city."

Unland said the interconnectedness of issues was a key takeaway from the listening sessions. "That's something to think about as voters, because one-issue candidates don't serve their city well," she said.

Recaps of the listening sessions are available on Taproot's website, and you can still share your thoughts on what issues you want candidates to be talking about.

Unland also shared her thoughts on Taproot's feature looking at the use of branded posts from city councillors on social media.
