RECAP: December 2017

Good King Wenceslas looked out on the Feast of Stephen and saw some SPECTACULAR December council meetings. ‘Twas the season to be jolly, but that doesn’t mean our meetings were devoid of drama. Citizens were upset about doctor’s offices, interfacility traffic areas, and, well, everything else frankly. But on the podcast we also heard about the good, weird, and downright dangerous gifts council members have received in their meetings.

We chronicled:

3 council meetings

In 3 states

With a combined population of


We saw

1 kindly doctor face off against an entire Texas street

2 dramatic saves from a freshman councilman

1 faux Santa Claus theatrically open some presents

4 podcast interviews, including the lord mayor who was attacked outside a meeting and the council member who wants a very simple parting gift

1 special episode guest-hosted by a jolly, sleigh-riding guest

And I hope Santa Claus slipped a little something extra into the stockings of these good boys and girls, without whom December 2017 would have been less festive:


Virginia Beach, Virginia city council


Nacogdoches, Texas city council


Littleton, Colorado city council
