We’ll be doing a Q&A with Goldsmith later this week. Please submit your questions to me through email or Twitter. We’ll be discussing the hot-button topics and his priorities for the next four years. I’d imagine we’ll also touch on one of his more memorable assertions from his first term: Why Goldsmith believes he’s a player and not a potted plant.
