Vindy (Vindicator) Videos from my interview and a quote

So I have not figured out how to embed the Vindy videos from the interview with editorial staff of September 23, 2013.
Here are the links to excerpts from the interview.

Beiersdorfer on Reasons for Running

Beiersdorfer: Communicating with Council

I found a lovely quote by Terry Tempest Williams in the book “Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Create a Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit” by Parker J. Palmer. This book is so well-written and heart-felt.

“The human heart is the first home of democracy.  It is where we embrace our questions. Can we be equitable? Can we be generous? Can we listen with our whole beings, not just our minds, and offer our attention rather than our opinions? And do we have enough resolve in our hearts to act courageously, relentlessly, without giving up—ever—trusting our fellow citizens to join with us in our determined pursuit of a living democracy?”
