Urban Politics

May 21, 2018 in Politics

How we build our cities is always going to be intertwined with politics. This episode is the first of two episodes where I talk to urbanists who have become politicians.

Today, I talk to Jyoti Gondek, a City Councillor in Calgary. Jyoti has her PhD in urban sociology. She was elected as the Ward 3 City Councillor during Calgary’s municipal election in the fall of 2017.
