Devon Reese on City Council, Pride, and More

June 22, 2021

This week's guest is Reno's City Councilman At-Large Devon Reese! Devon was appointed to the city council when a vacancy opened in 2019 and went on to run for the seat and be elected to the position for a full term in 2020.

Conor and Devon enjoy a wide-ranging discussion about what the city council is responsible for in Reno (and what it isn't), how Devon communicates with constituents, the challenges of campaigning during covid, campaign finance reform to allow more candidates access to the ballot, his lifelong connection with the art of debate and why it's important for how we communicate, Pride in Reno and the importance of LGBTQ+ representation, rainbow capitalism and pink-washing, the importance and validity of protests, the goals and next steps for the Nevada Cares Campus, and so much more!

Thank you for listening!
