Lucas Frerichs was my first interview on this program, which debuted March 17, 2020. Since then, he's been re-elected to the Davis City Council to represent District 3, and now serves as Vice Mayor. It's never an easy job to help govern a city, but of course it's been endlessly complicated during a pandemic. This weekend Lucas and I got together over Zoom and in Episode 49, had a far-ranging conversation touching on virtual governance; testing in Davis; the uptick in cannabis tax revenue during the pandemic, as well as the overall financial situation facing municipalities; traffic, crime, and more. I'm sure we could have talked for hours, but I always appreciate the opportunity to sit down with our local elected officials and touch base about community issues through their lens.
