Video: Place 5 Candidate John Rubine

Comprising half of the 14 candidates for City Council, Place 5 is a crowded field.

Political newcomer John Rubine is one of the seven candidates running in Place 5 against incumbent Bill Spelman. KUT’s Wells Dunbar spoke with Rubine about a number of issues including Austin’s affordability, energy rate increases, and how he plans to improve voter turnout. You can listen to audio of our interview with Rubine, but above, we’ve posted an extended video version of our interview with him.

Early voting for city elections begins Monday, April 30.

Wells has been a part of KUT News since 2012, when he was hired as the station's first online reporter. He's currently the social media host and producer for Texas Standard, KUT's flagship news program. In between those gigs, he served as online editor for KUT, covering news in Austin, Central Texas and beyond.
