On 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 former Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia. He spent 23 years as an officer in the Houston Police Department before being tapped to serve as HPD’s liaison to and later director of Mayor Bob Lanier’s Anti-Gang Office. Garcia then spent six years on the Houston City Council, and was Mayor Pro Tempore under Bill White. He was elected Harris County Sheriff in 2008, and re-elected in 2012. This is his first run for mayor.

Also this hour: We discuss the SWAMP Business of Film Conference. Now in its 11th year, the Houston-based conference put on by the Southwest Alternate Media Project helps filmmakers understand the business side of the film biz better and connect with the right people to produce and distribute films. We learn more from Alfred Cervantes, Deputy Director for the Houston Film Commission, and a Board Member of SWAMP.

Plus: We look back at the impact and legacy of the Galveston Storm of 1900, 115 years ago today, with the help of Dwayne Jones, Secretary of the Galveston Historical Foundation.
