Interview with Roland Chavez

And so we begin another campaign candidate interview season. I will be talking to candidates in various contested races on the ballot here this fall and presenting those interviews to you over the next three months. (Yes, it takes that long. Lots of races, lots of candidates.) I make no claim or promise to talk to every candidate in each of these races – in fact, I can guarantee that I won’t – but I do the best I can. It’s a lot of work, but it’s also very rewarding. I generally enjoy talking to all these folks, whether I agree with them or not, and I think it’s important to do what I can to give voters a chance to hear what they have to say. As always, I welcome your feedback on these interviews.

I will be starting with the district Council races, which are not nearly as active as they’ve been in some other years, partly because there are only two open seats and partly because there’s so much action in the At Large race. We begin at home – for me, anyway – in District H, where four contenders vie to succeed term-limited CM Ed Gonzalez. First up is Roland Chavez, a neighbor of mine here in the Heights. Chavez retired in 2013 as a 34-year veteran of HFD, which included a stint as the firefighters’ union president. He was a candidate for At Large #3 in 2013. Here’s what we talked about:
