What's The Data Point? Episode 13 - 95 with City Council Member Julissa Ferreras-Copeland [You can download What's The [Data] Point? wherever you get your podcasts, including on iTunes]

For this episode of the podcast, we were joined by City Council Member Julissa Ferreras-Copeland, who has chaired the powerful finance committee and is leaving the City Council at the end of the year. Ferreras-Copeland could have run for one more term, and was seen as a leading contender to become the next City Council Speaker, but decided not to seek reelection this year. She explains why on the podcast, part of a wide-ranging discussion about politics, the city budget process, and much more.
