CM Costello still working on Houston's "food deserts"

Interview with CM Stephen Costello - Off the Kuff

Be sure to listen about two-thirds of the way through the interview, at which point Councilmember Costello -- the public infrastructure builder who was the driving force behind the Rain Tax -- discusses his current obsession: Irrigating Houston's "food deserts" (pardon the little pun).

We previously discussed Houston's "food deserts" here. And yes, CM Costello apparently does think this is one of the city's pressing problems.

Will Franklin had an entertaining post about Austin's "food deserts" on his blog today, along with a great quip on twitter noting that the liberal social engineering project has now expanded from guaranteeing "a chicken in every pot" to "a grocery store on every block."
