Mayoral Candidates 2015 BannerOn Tuesdays through Sept. 22, 2015, we offer you a chance to speak directly with the major candidates running to be the next mayor of the City of Houston. We continue on this edition with Houston City Council Member Steve Costello. Costello is a civil engineer, the co-founder and president of the engineering and surveying firm Costello Inc. He also worked previously for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Since 2009, he’s held an at-large position on the Houston City Council.

We discuss some of the issues facing Houston and what he thinks he would bring to the office. But really, this is a chance for you to ask your questions of this candidate.

Also this hour: On Wednesday (September 16, 2015), a panel discussion will be held at San Jacinto College in Pasadena to discuss the public’s right to photograph and record video in public. The forum is sponsored by the National Press Photographers Association, and comes as citizen videos of police interactions are drawing increased scrutiny to law enforcement. To learn more about citizens’ rights when it comes to taking photos or recording videos of police, we talk with Mickey Osterreicher, General Counsel for the NPPA, and Josh Bruegger, Assistant Chief with the Pasadena Police Department.

Plus: New Orleans is, of course, famous for Mardi Gras. But did you know Houston once had a week-long celebration some considered on par with Mardi Gras? It was called No-Tsu-Oh (pronounced NOTE’-soo-oh, it’s Houston spelled backwards; not to be confused with the notsuoH bar and performance venue), and from 1899 to 1915, the celebration brought a carnival atmosphere to much of the city. The group Houston Arts and Media is trying to bring No-Tsu-Oh, the event, back, on Oct. 1. Houston Matters’ Michael Hagerty learns more from the group’s executive director Mike Vance.
