Our inaugural episode features host Jeremy Torgerson having a lively and funny conversation with Ward 1 councilman (and new Mayor Pro Tem) Matt Johnston.


Brighton Mayor Pro Tem Matt Johnston

In it, we discuss:

– how he went from resident to elected leader, and why

– where his political aims were as a candidate, and what his campaign platform was all about

– the problems with the “good old boy” culture going back for many years

– how the long-standing water billing issues in Brighton led to the resident revolt that culminated in 2019’s mayoral recall of Ken Kreutzer

– how the city culture has changed since the recall

– the misconceptions and plain untruths about the recall effort, some of which continue today

– what’s coming up for the city in the next few months

– what he thinks of working with the new council members and new Mayor Greg Mills
