Title given to a member of a commission or to an individual who has been given a commission
We are excited to share this Special Edition with you. We had the opportunity late last week to visit with Jimmy Glotfelty, Commissioner on the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUC). Jimmy was appointed as Commissioner by Governor Abbott in 2021 following an extensive career in the energy and power public and private sectors, including Founder of Clean Line Energy, Senior Policy Advisor to US Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham, Energy Policy Director to then Texas Governor George W. Bush, Legislative Director for Congressman Sam Johnson, and Executive and Managerial roles at Calpine Corporation, ICF Consulting and Quanta Services. Jimmy was recently and additionally directed by the Governor (letter linked here) to lead a new Working Group focused on the future of nuclear energy in Texas. It was our honor not just to visit with Jimmy but to help him publicize the Working Group's efforts in order to allow for anyone who has ideas or thoughts to aid in evaluating advanced nuclear energy to be able to share them with the Commissioner. In our discussion, Jimmy shares background on the group's creation and goals, Texas' position to be a leader in nuclear energy, as well as the role of Texas communities. On Thursday, September 28th, the first public meeting will take place in Austin (details linked here) to discuss the Working Group's proposed organizational structure, process and timeline for the coming months. Jimmy reiterated the group's willingness to hear all opinions, including voices from underserved communities and those who are opposed to nuclear. We also discuss which other states are preparing to build nuclear sites and how nuclear can position Texas to have reliable and clean power for decades to come, how to address short-term power and transmission issues, how the Working Group will collaborate with the Federal government, the feedback Jimmy has received so far, and Jimmy's personal interest in the cause. We ended with Jimmy's vision for power in Texas in ten years. We are confident that Jimmy and his team are prepared for the challenge and were thrilled to spend time with him. Mike Bradley kicked us off by highlighting that bond markets are under pressure given the FED's recent dialogue that interest rates are likely to stay higher for longer, which pushed the 10-year yield to 17-year high of 4.5%. From a commodities standpoint, he highlighted that Brent and WTI price were relatively unchanged on the week given that Saudi remains vigilant with crude oil production management, which is keeping global physical crude oil markets tight. He also noted that WTI could be getting additional price support due to Cushing crude oil storage levels nearing 10-year seasonal lows. He highlighted that broader equity markets were down roughly 4-5% over the last five trading days due to lingering concerns around interest rates, crude oil prices, a US government shutdown, and the UAW strike against the three largest US automakers. He also noted that two high profile IPOs have recently traded under their recent IPO price which could be a worrisome sign for equity markets. Mike wrapped by noting that the UK government looks to be pushing out the phase out date for their ICE vehicle sales from the current date of 2030 out to 2035. Brett Rampal joined and contributed his nuclear perspective and questions in the discussion. If you are in the area, we hope you'll consider joining the Commissioner on Thursday or tune in online. Updates on the Working Group's progress will be available on the PUC website (linked here) under Project #55421. Thanks to you all!
Laura Kavanagh was appointed Fire Commissioner by Mayor Eric Adams in October 2022. As Fire Commissioner, Kavanagh oversees the day-to-day operations of the largest fire department in the country, with more than 17,000 employees and a $2 billion budget. We're excited to have Laura Kavanagh on the show today to talk specifically about battery fires, where according to the FDNY, batteries have led to 180 fires (now 187) and tragically 14 people have died so far this year in NYC. SummaryCommissioner Laura Kavanagh of the NYC Fire Department discusses her rise through the ranks and her leadership in handling various emergencies. The focus of the conversation centers on the rising incidence of battery fires in the city, attributed to small electric vehicles like e-bikes, used predominantly by delivery workers. There is concern about the modifications and underground markets around these devices, emphasizing the need for regulation, inspection, and collaboration with other departments and agencies to address the immediate and future challenges presented by these battery fires.Highlights Laura Kavanagh, the 34th commissioner of the NYC Fire Department, has held various roles and oversaw the department's response to several emergencies, including the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic and the Ebola outbreak in 2015. The FDNY reports a substantial rise in battery fires, recording 220 in 2022, up from 30 in 2019, and has noted the prevalence of these fires in small electric vehicles like e-bikes, scooters, and mopeds. Much attention is given to delivery workers as they are heavily reliant on these devices, which are often modified or altered to enhance performance or extend battery life, contributing to the risks and frequency of fires. Numerous issues arise from modifications, DIY conversion kits, and unregulated devices entering the market, creating unsafe conditions and usage that go beyond the original intended design of these electric vehicles. The challenge of inspecting and regulating these devices is intensified by the prevalence of underground markets and the inability to inspect private apartments where unsafe charging and alterations often occur. The FDNY is collaborating with the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies to examine and address the public safety impacts, with considerations on future innovations, recycling, and regulations on electrification. While government agencies are receptive and showing progress, Kavanagh emphasizes the urgency in expediting regulations and legislative actions to address the growing and immediate risks associated with battery fires in small electric vehicles.

In this episode, I share a video call I had with PBOT Commissioner Mingus Mapps about the Broadway Bike Lane Scandal. His office set up this 30-minute interview to respond to our stories about Mapps' involvement in a push from his PBOT Director Millicent Williams to make significant changes to the protected bike lane on NW/SW Broadway. Williams' email to PBOT staff on September 14th made it clear she was ready to move forward — with what she claims was Mapps' approval — on reversing the changes on Broadway and putting back to a less safe configuration.For more on this story, read the full coverage on BikePortland.

Dr. Philip Vinson, an economist at Georgia Gwinnett College, believes that raising interest rates is effective in addressing inflation, even if it doesn't immediately lower prices. Instead, it aims to reduce the rate of price increases. While inflation has dropped from its peak of 9% to around 3.2%, it remains above the Fed's 2% target. Further rate hikes could risk pushing the economy into a recession, impacting business growth, employment, housing, and the stock market. The Fed's choice between hitting the inflation target and avoiding a recession will be a critical one.

Portland is about to switch to an entirely new form of government, following a charter reform plan that voters approved last November. The transformation won't happen in earnest until January 2025, when the winners of the November 2024 election will take office as the first mayor and city councilors under the new system. But there's an enormous amount of preparation that must take place first, and it falls to the city's current mayor and commissioners to oversee that work. Commissioner Dan Ryan was a guest on this week's episode of Straight Talk to discuss that process, as well as his thoughts on the decision to end the city's sole-source contract with the Regional Arts & Culture Council, and the city's ongoing efforts to resolve its homelessness crisis through projects like Safe Rest Villages and mass sanctioned campsites.
On this episode of Radically Pragmatic, Dr. Diana Moss, Vice President and Director of Competition Policy at the Progressive Policy Institute, sits down with Russ D'Souza, co-founder of SeatGeek, and Terrell McSweeny, former Commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission, to discuss the Ticketmaster and Live Nation monopoly. In the episode, Moss and guests outline the Live Nation monopoly story and how their restrictive policies and contracts ensure Ticketmaster is the only ticketing platform available, hurting consumers. Ticketmaster has 70% share of the market and Live Nation has a similar market share in exclusive contracts and in recent years, music and sports fans have been outspoken about their lack of choices.

STORY 5: Cobb commission cancels land swap deal meant to protect Dobbins Air Reserve Base The Cobb County Board of Commissioners has voted to terminate a land swap agreement with developer Venture Communities, which could potentially lead to the construction of condominiums within the accident potential zone of Dobbins Air Reserve Base. In a controversial 2021 vote, the commission approved rezoning for a condo development in the accident zone despite objections from Dobbins, the Cobb Chamber of Commerce, and the county's Planning Commission. The land swap agreement approved in January 2022 was meant to resolve the issue, but the commission has now decided to terminate it. Encroachment by development remains a significant concern for the base's viability, and discussions with the developer are ongoing to find a resolution that complies with FAA guidelines. STORY 6: Marietta school board to superintendent: 'Remove sexually explicit material from our district' The Marietta City Schools Board of Commissioners is taking action to address sexually explicit content in school media centers. They plan to issue a directive to Superintendent Grant Rivera, requesting the removal of material deemed "obscene, pornographic, not age-appropriate, and without substantive historical or academic value." The directive aims to ensure content aligns with the district's educational goals and community standards. It also calls for staff training, a review process for library books, and a system for reporting potentially explicit materials. Superintendent Rivera has outlined steps to monitor content, including policy reminders and oversight of book purchases. Both actions come after the removal of controversial books from Marietta High School's library. The board emphasizes that it is not a book ban but a measure to remove explicit and inappropriate content.
