In an Advocate video podcast, editor Emily Toman and publisher Rick Wamre sit down with District 12 city councilman and mayoral candidate Ron Natinsky. During Part 1 of 3 of the discussion, he discusses his staunch opposition to raising taxes (4:28) and why he thinks most citizens weren't in favor of the recent increase (6:15). Natinsky also explains why he believes the convention center hotel will pay off in the long run (7:45) and reacts to a quote from The Observer's Jim Schutze who says these expensive projects are "useless ego trips ... that will do nothing to build to the future of our city." And finally, Natinsky tells us how he can effectively balance the visionary projects with our basic needs like street repairs, libraries and rec centers (11:37).
