Sally Shipman: one of my heroes

Former Austin City councilmember Sally Shipman died this week. In college, I worked in her office and for her campaign. She taught me about being a good citizen and made me believe that politics can be practiced by people who believe in doing the right thing. I learned so much from her. She also tried to get me to dress better. At that she failed.

I’ll have more to say about Sally on this week’s show.
