Todd Gloria decided not to run for mayor and I asked him as many questions about that choice as I could think of.

It was one of many subjects we touched on in a special hour-long podcast. The councilman and now Assembly hopeful surprised me with the suggestion that the city do away with the rule that, in an election, one candidate can win outright with just over 50 percent of the vote in the primary.

He also sounded surprisingly pessimistic about the chance of a major infrastructure bond being placed on the November 2016 ballot – a commitment his colleague on the City Council, Mark Kersey, made.

Our regular podcast runs every Friday, but I’ve been trying to line up as many of these one-on-one conversations as I can.
