Open Source RVA: Nov. 16, 2012 Podcast

On this episode of Open Source RVA, WRIR's weekly audio digest  introduces you to Parker Agelasto, the new city council representative who beat Marty Jewell for the 5th District seat in the Nov. 6 election. Agelasto talks candidly about city issues, including Richmond's water rates, schools, crime, and the suggestion that he will serve as a "rubber stamp" for Mayor Dwight Jones.

An arts historian and museum curator, Agelasto also speaks on issues relating to Richmond's cultural community, including CenterStage, the new downtown arts district, the high meals tax and more.

Alice Lynch from the Virginia Capitol Foundation also joins us to talk about a new visitor's orientation film about the history of Virginia, Keepers of the Flame, that is a step above your ordinary tourist video.
