1.25.11 Member of Charlottesville City Council Kristin Szakos joins Coy to explain the recent water supply vote. A few months ago, Szakos was open with her support of a phased approach- the proposal championed by Mayor Norris. However, last week, Szakos was one of the 3 members of City Council who voted in favor of the new water supply plan. In today’s conversation, Szakos explains her decision to vote as she did and also responds to the citizens who are calling her out individually for changing her mind. Finally, Szakos provides her thoughts on the merits of dredging.
