Today we start my series of interviews for the November 2009 elections. I hope interview as many candidates for City Council, City Controller, and Mayor as possible, as well as candidates for HISD Trustee. First up is Karen Derr, who is running for the open At Large #1 seat that is being vacated by Council Member Peter Brown. Derr is a realtor and resident of the Heights and was briefly a candidate for the District H seat in the May special election. You may notice that with my migration to WordPress I’ve now got a built-in player for these interviews, but you can still get a copy of the MP3 file as well for your iPod. If I’ve done this correctly, you can subscribe to a podcast feed here. As always, please let me know what you think.
