Video: Place 5 Candidate Bill Spelman

When Bill Spelman was elected to City Council three years ago, he didn’t face a single challenger. Now he faces six opponents in his bid for re-election.

KUT’s Wells Dunbar spoke with Spelman about the interplay of growth and congestion, the Austin Energy rate redesign, and whether Austin is ready for votes on urban rail and geographic representation this November. You can listen to KUT’s radio interview with Spelman online; above, you can view an expanded version of our discussion.

Early voting in the Austin 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.
