"commissioner" Discussed on The Auideo Show
"Five months ago which also how. That's how quickly is moving. that's insane. Yeah so it's been five months. How does one go about getting appointed. So it's not common to get appointed to the city commission. You have to do the only way that really happens is if one of the commissioners sort of steps off of the commission early so before their terms expired so We just happened to have two appointments in the past year for randomly in for our city commission so when that happens the commissioners of which there are five total so in for me there was four commissioners who all voted to appoint me until they kind of went through this application process where anybody who lived in the city of bozeman who was at least eighteen could have applied to be appointed to the commission and then the commissioners the ones who sort of picked to want it to be one of their colleagues so i went to the sprinters twice to process. I just gonna albert went. So there was an opening in october of twenty twenty and so i applied then Didn't get picked in october but had just a lot of public support. And that's what really inspired me to to so Launch my campaign in january of twenty twenty one. I was like you know. There's a moment here where people are asking for something that doesn't currently exist on the boat city commission someone who has more experience that mirror what most people experience in in our town so that really that support that i got even though it wasn't picked in october really sort of made me realize that there was a there was a time and a lot of sort of Energy and enthusiasm for something just a little bit more aligned with what the most common experience is the commission. I felt like i could actually really serve that role really well so i want my campaign in january and then again randomly. In april there was another opening. So i said already running this campaign. Remember me. i wanna be a commissioner. But what better way to show the the you know the people who live in this community with me that i'm that i'm excited and to serve And really worthy of their vote. They actually doing that job. And so i applied again in april on the key. The commissioner has picked me. I've been serving ever since. That's so cool win not give up with it. I respect that good jeff. Yeah thank you. Yeah it wasn't ever. I mean if anything it was more just not getting picked in. October is really just for me. Like okay like nothing about my life really change. I still have my my jobs jobs. I'm doing it wasn't like i. It was a really random opportunity that kinda came up and in october. So i had i had it like a line. My whole life around this one opportunity So let me just see what happens. You see if no if there's if i can get appointed in. You know if i if i appointed only other chance to see if i have like you know being in public office in serving in this way Spoiler i do like it. I love doing it so it was just more of like it was even though i think pick didn't have. It wasn't like earth shattering was more. Okay we'll like let's do this the way where people vote for me then inaugural it that way and you you have to you get appointed.

"Code take to receive your first month. Free expresses all new and made to express you from the stretches teams in the game to confidence. Boosting suits that. Feel like sweats. Discover new arrivals express. Shopping express dot com or in stores. That's the two thousand twenty. One induction class wants to thank those previous inductees who gave winded acceptance speeches forcing us. To have a whopping six minutes to recap our football careers. I wanna give special. Thanks to my old rival. Ray lewis for being here tonight ray. Just finished giving his speech that he started in two thousand eighteen. Speaking arrivals my good friend. Tom brady is here tonight by the time. He is inducted by the time. Tom brady's inducted in his first year of eligibility in the year. Two thousand thirty five to only have time to post his acceptance speech on his instagram account. Hand manning is the best and he's legit funny as entertaining as ever during that hall of fame speech and what i loved about it. Is you had the dichotomy of the tears and the laughter would expect nothing else. What stood out to you the most men in of course i mean. Obviously mega tron gave gave his speech and it was really really nice I love seeing jimmy johnson up. They're reminded me of how shamefully is that he still lives in ann. Dallas cowboys ring of honor. As yet he was in a hall of fame. I of course. Cnn motions from charles woodson serenading. His mother was very very touching but in the end. Peyton manning's peyton manning. And i've never gotten overseeing him on saturday night. Live talk about five votes coming. Five hilarious was hysterical. You know trying to jack the car and stuff like that. It was hysterical. Really a paint man is really really funny and even though there was some emotions obviously when he was talking about his dad because When you think about a father that's what you that that's what really touches your heart strains when you see the sons and archie manning's relationship with his children and how he raised them and how they're such class massana fide. They really truly the first family of football and tom brady to be in attendance. That was incredibly classing touching on his part. But in the end would peyton manning. That's the beauty of him. You expect knowledge. You expect seriousness. You expect a lot of quality elements. Also you expect a lot of humor. He always makes you smile. He always makes you laugh and he is just a star in his own right on so many levels and it was really really good to see him inducted. When peyton manning was done giving a speech on the way everyone. I think watches tv. Nowadays you're on social media as you're doing it in your social media exploded and everyone was saying the same thing i was thinking. That's a future. Nfl commissioner and part of the reason. Is stephen eight. Peyton manning has command. He knows how to command an audience. He has command as a performer. And i think a lot of what people responded to positively people were acting like it was so brilliantly written at the end to me to tell you the truth that was tortured metaphor. It lacked the motion at the end to me. And i didn't find it particularly artful at the end and it was riddled with cliches. But that's kind of what you want a commission you want a commissioner should be able to command. The audience should be smart and and should know how to give you a good feeling without sometimes saying too much that goes out of out of the parameters of cliche. Compare that to charles woodson. I didn't think what i watch woodson. I think oh boy. There's the future nfl commissioner. But that was the most moving speech to me. You mentioned it started out with his mother and but the execution throughout that speech precisely because it seems so heartfelt the way he had everyone stand up and give credit to everyone who helped get him there. I thought there wasn't a false note. In charles woodson speech. It was totally authentic. I thought it was full of emotion. And that's the one. I'm going to remember but i do think i agree with people who watch peyton. Manning said that guy could be commissioner one day and almost stephen felt to me like an audition for the role. Eventually guys get something else in here with the manning family so pay not the only manning to thrive over the weekend. His brother eli tweeting. This pain is not the only manning to win an award today. Abby an i we won the consolation bracket of the be league mixed doubles tennis. This day just became even more special for the manning family. Don't tell pay. I don't wanna take anything. Fake laugh at stuff honestly. I'm telling everyone because we're on tv. And i wanna be nice especially with you. But that was funny. You have to love the manning's max do think eli will be the next one inducted into the hall of fame just loved the shades. Stephen sometimes you guys fake laughed. Be nice eli funny laughing right now a gentleman but yes you is going to be. I don't know if. I ballad. But stephen a he was an iron man he played in a place. That's not easy to put up numbers and his numbers. Don't look great. He was an iron man who won two superbowl. Mvp's who is. By the way. I i keep bringing this up fivethirtyeight this thing a study. Who's the most clutch quarterback back of all time. He li- by so much redid their methodology. They said no one's this much better than everyone else in the clutch and this time it was much closer. Joe montana second manning i if you are arguably the most clutch quarterback who ever lived you have to super bowl. Mvp's and you're an iron man. You're in the hall of fame you probably right max Just as long as you're not saying he's first ballot which you said. He's not first ballad. You've got a five hundred one seventeen. One seventeen led the league in the centers on three separate occasions. Your career completed percentages at sixty percent of those are not hall of fame numbers. But you are two two thousand two times champion your to thompson. Vol- mvp and you did deliver in the clutch. And i think when you take that into consideration along the fact that your last name is manning. It certainly doesn't hurt. Definitely i definitely see that. And as as it pertains to tamale faking laugh. You might do that with you. But she's always looking at me like crazy. He's laughing at me. She's just looking at me like oh my what is if you've been there asked to laugh even looks at me like what's wrong with stephen. That's what she says. So it's good again this year. So said i can never win with men. Can someone please tell me a hard time winning with story like do you own or rent your home show you do.

"There. You give him four years. I can get it okay. That that's fair but that that requires trust. And what i'm saying to you. Is that when you're in court wildlands position. I personally believe you have an obligation to be more than just a great player. You gotta be a leader. You gotta be the face of a franchise. If lebron james pulled up portion of the stuff that violated his pull. Do you never hear all over him. We would crucify him. It's a shame and kendrick perkins was right when he said that it's a shame that collide linnet has flown under the radar and has gotten away with some of the stuff that he's gotten away with in hijacking the clippers organization. But stephen i think part of that is how he lays low you know. He's not on social media doesn't talk much so he can't reminder people's radars you know i just wanna mention one thing guys. He is just thirty still. I mean when we're talking about guys step solar katie's older than i mean. We know the laker. So he's a star. He's a superstar talent. The talent and a champion. I'm just talking about when you talk about building a culture long-term you can't have young guys around constantly seeing that stuff you take off when you want you play when you want in all of this other stuff.

Could we be in for a repeat. Espn's fbi projections for the twenty twenty one season. There's an eighty percent chance to chiefs face the bucks again in the super bowl more than any other potential matchup sucks returning a lot of their team from last year. We know all the super bowl starters and of course they have the go. That is teflon. Tom stephen a what can stop the bucks from repeating. What is a few things that could stop the bucks. A lot of people think kansas city. I would say long before that. I think you've got the los angeles rams like we've talked about with matthew staff and now is their quarterback With some of the requisite weapons that they have and and robin woods and kupa cup in those boys are not lost cam acres That was a that was a loss but They had another running back here that rest for over six hundred yards. And you've got that and they've got one of the best defences the entire national football league in an absolute stud aaron donald so i think the combination of all of those leaves them is incredibly formidable. We can't forget. The green bay packers. Because rogers can't make all of this noise being that bad man he is. He can't make all of this noise in the off season and then come in and wet the bed disease it because i think it would validate everything that the green bay packers hinted at when they drafted jordan love. So yeah he kind of you know napalm net nonsense by going out there and putting forth an mvp season but now the this off season the and so he's going to be just as motivated as he wasn't a pass because he's got to show that he didn't make all of this noise for nothing he can't attach any validity to what green bay tried to put out about him about his days being numbered. So i think we gotta pay attention to green bay. I think we've got to pay attention to obviously los angeles. I can't sniff at san francisco. Because i think the defense is going to be back on track. And whether this jimmy garoppolo or trade nance i think they'll be in the mix and of course russell wilson seattle so agassi all of those things being a potential impediment to tampa bay success. Even though i clearly have tampa bay is favorites to come out of the nfc. I think look are the packers and and sure the rams are they threats to the bucks. Absolutely they are but if you ask me what's the thing that can stop the box. I got to choose one. I'm going to take the kansas city chiefs boring right. That's what everyone would say the chiefs. But i'm going to do it. The most spectacular player in the super bowl last year meeting the guy you'll remember his actual plays from that super bowl. Was the losing quarterback. Who's the guy mystically didn't look like the guy who is running for his life on every play. Remember both tackles were missing both three offensive. Linemen started we're gone as a result he was facing patrick. Mahomes more pressure on each snap than any player in the super bowl ever live pressured on a higher percentage of snaps than anyone ever and of course they only had to bring enough to bring any extra guys and so no one was ever open and yet the home doing super human thing what he was doing now the chiefs through in the austin patrick mahomes have to go round waving around. You better get offense line. No tape brought in orlando brown. Who's an elite left tackle. They shot signed jo. Tony who is an elite left guard. They brought in blyth from the rams stephen as from your rams who's competing among some other candidates to play at center remers still on the right. They'd completely revamped their offensive line at the highest possible level. The chiefs are the ones who pose the biggest threat because they have patrick mahomes who has a great offensive line on paper now and an embarrassment of riches in.

"Let's catch up on what's been a busy. Nba offseason the lakers traded for former mvp russell. Westbrook loaded la. Now has four of the top eight active players in career points per game. What lebron ad russ in mellow steph. Curry agreed to a four year. Two hundred fifteen million dollars extension with the warriors last season curry joined michael jordan as the only players aged thirty three older to win the scoring title fresh off caring team. Usa throughout the olympics and winning his third gold medal. Kevin durant signed a four year. One hundred and nine hundred million dollars extension with the brooklyn nets and leonard agreed to re sign with the clippers after opting out of his original contract. Leonard is expected to miss significant time as he recovers from an acl injury. Max kellerman. i know who. I won't be back for some time. But tell me this. Will he win title with the clippers. I think eventually he will. I don't think who is done winning championships. And i think it'll be with the clippers. He's going to sign long-term there. He is still in his prime. He look michael. Jordan ruined a lot of guys in terms of comparisons. Because he came around and once he hit his pray never missed games and once he hit his prime he just won the championship every year and so nowadays a year goes by and you know like koby a first and then lebron or something what happened. You didn't win the championship. Well you weren't supposed to win the championship every year until mj came along and he did it to himself. He told lebron and everything all this pressure on himself but kawais being held to that standard he didn't win the championship again. That's two years even though you choke the first year had a great series choked in the game seven and but but like wasn't available this year because of injury. That's going to happen. He's injury he's gonna miss some seasons he's chunks of seasons. You might miss the playoffs. He's gonna you're gonna have to manage him. Which is going to get on people's nerves and then he's filled may be absent for a time but he has how many more bites at the apple in la. For a steve bomber team. A guy was clearly willing to spend money to make the team. Good paul george is on the team. You have guys like terrence mann ascending young talent team. They just raft jason preston. Who is lame making. Set up your teammates. Type point guard imaginative playmaker. They're hoping that they have lacked recently. Because patrick beverley rondo also didn't do the job. When you have y and paul georgia's you're cornerstones an owner willing to spend money and you're gonna get four five more bites at the apple. I'm gonna go ahead and say that a two-time finals. Mvp at some point is going to get it done again. I'm not going to be stupid. And say that a guy who six seven six eight With his myriad of skills and championship pedigree who just averaged thirty on fifty seven percent shooting in eleven playoff games. Nowhere heli championship. That's just ignorant. I'm not gonna say that what i'll say to you max. Kellerman is that. I have my doubts and i have strong doubts and if several reasons number one i'm on the record i would not give a while a long term contract. I don't blame the clippers if they do. But i wouldn't do it because even though i consider him a top five talent in the game when healthy. He's not a culture builder. He's a guy that dragged grabs his lunch pail and does what he does. And at the end of the day when the buzzer. Sounds when when tip off arrives he shows up for practicing when you want to working out when you want to a plan when you want to and what have you. I just don't think that's a great great thing and from everything that we've been told that's what he does. Nobody said he's a bad guy. Nobody said teammates dislike him or anything like that. I'm not trying to engage in that kind of of of of cynicism. I'm simply saying look at. The game played in the last few years. He hasn't played sixty. He hasn't played more than sixty games. I think the last four years. This man takes tom off any operates his own beat and even though that works for him it compromises everything else. It's similar to what i said. Max if you recall when kyrie irving was talking about. We don't really need a coach. My response was kyri might not. because he's electrifying. He's boxoffice put those other plays. Did an went. Kyri went down and kevin durant was looking for help. It was hard to find because of the lack of experience person on the sideline to make sure all of those dudes around were ready. Not steve national. Learn from that and even better this upcoming. I think it helps that. He's not going to have mike dantonio on the bench with them. Okay but the bottom line is that was a hindrance. When i look at the clippers i think about kawhi leonard and how that hindu i also think about the fact that i'm thinking about lucas donncha and ludovic at six seven game series that they played max thirty one thirty nine forty four forty two twenty nine forty six. Where's the hell of the defensive as leonard to do something about that kind of individual dominate. Because that's what luka was doing them which is why the series went seven games. We gotta pay attention to that. We got pay attention significant competition in the western conference. The only reason why would summarily dismissed. What you're saying max is because i happen to think that tai lue can make an argument that he's the best coach in basketball right right now i am. Because he's that good of a coach and you've got some personnel around him not to mitch. You got over that hump finally get to the conference finals. The drafting that kid on johnson. I like as well. I'm just looking at the los angeles clippers. Do they have a chance. Yes would i bet my money on it. No well in the playoffs. It would be wise to bet your money on kawai letter. Because he's one of the all time great performers. You mentioned tie lou believe he is the best coach basketball. We saw it again. These last playoffs. If you look go back and look at what now look great offensive player. Stephen is going to get his. I don't care who is on. I mean put dennis rodman you know dennis rodman you mean luke luke. I'm saying you can put whoever you want on a great offensive player if they got it. There's not so much that can be done particularly in this. Nba the way. The rules are enforced. So do you believe yes. No kawhi is a great defensive player. I believe he's one of the greatest defensive players ever even if he's not quite what he was a couple of years ago defensively. I'll give you that. He's still a great defensive player. You go back and look at the playoff series like you mentioned thirty thirty points a game on the fifty five fifty eight percent shooting whatever. Here's playoff series. Just going back to two thousand seventeen. This is what he averaged in each series twenty seven thirty to twenty four thirty three twenty nine thirty thirty five twenty eight twenty six twenty four thirty one. He's he's doing it on great shooting and he's doing with defense like you think he's not a culture builder any great teams going to have at least two max contract type guys. Nowadays right can be one of them. Yes he can yes. He'll frequently be the best in the series. You cannot justify not paying him. Like i think year. Here's what i'm trying to say max. I have no problem with hawaii. Mu- lennon's money. I think he deserves every penny. It's the years that i have a problem with him with trump because i i- durability ability as a question mark and i think his level of commitment towards being something more than just a great player plays a role of hit. The not july. Stephen a. on the long term deal because if it was one or two years maybe he doesn't win a chip with them but remember the clippers have never wanted to shake. That's the way he's been.

"Company comes on the show that's doing the right thing and maybe as being suppressed by those large voices, we go out of our way to highlight those companies so. I think it's great. The commission is doing that on the regulatory level with these distinctions and awards and something I. Hope we'll continue to do with the young Turks as well. I have to say I apologize I, keep getting into my passionate feels I've been trying to keep a question related but sometimes, I just kind of go so that that is why I watch the show. That's why I come on his show I think and I think I've been coming on the show before I leave the commissioner, I followed it through so many different locations and now different like video. Where do but it because like this show preserve what I liked about the grassroots community, which is like integrity comes first but you also you know you're not afraid to say what needs to be fed and you have a lot of time to you know it's hard to find that somewhat you know these days but I think it's preserved show. Well that's certainly something we take as a high compliment and obviously someone like yourself who so tuned in to the nuances of the Regulatory Framework Legislative Framework Nipple Framework. It really is high praise and it's humbling in some ways. You know you brought something up which that you've been around the show for a period of years. I know you did some work for you were commissioner and then you became a commissioner How did that transition play out for you and how did you go about confronting the fact that as you transition from sort of you know your previous And staffing workout your company to being a regulator. Where you had to make decisions that hurt people you may have known how did that transition play out? Yeah they asking that I I talked a lot about my background when I first started as the commissioner and I definitely I gave a lot of keynote speeches and stuff where I was really trying to like get certain things in in the lexicon you know and I think that that happened So I kinda like stopped talking personally so much you know the the past year or two but The transition has been fairly smooth because I'm very lucky in that I've been working on the same thing, the whole time and they've actually gotten much more popular as time has gone on I've obviously gotten like more of an opportunity to make an impact time a gun on when I started a business background Before I got my law degree I got a event business degree while.

"Thank you commissioner thank you so much and and great of course will stick with us for questions so the next thing that we're gonna talk about is the budget the county budget as you know there is federal legislation rolling through we have been advocating very hard to try to be included in some of the relief package that is coming down for businesses for hospitals all super important we understand the importance of those dollars we were hopeful that we would get some relief also we did not from our understanding of the language of my coffee out on that is I want to thank especially senators Portman and brown for working diligently to make sure that their colleagues understand the impact to local governments of this slowdown especially those of us that rely on sales tax earnings tax the hits are tremendous and my understanding is there will be another package that hopefully will provide some relief to the public sector show very very grateful for their advocacy it for both of our our our delegation both in the house and in the Senate I I do like I did say this yesterday and I I like in this too you know the money that we've received is very restricted and can be used for our response to cope with nineteen none of which could have been included in a previous budget okay so that's what we've got so there are new dollars and it's helpful and we've been able to re house people that are homeless in this community we have been able to purchase PP we have been able to separate the nine one one callers as we talked about before however we've got this huge hole in the budget and public sector employees that have been furloughed these are real jobs to and also as you think about this in context with opening up part of the economy when you think through the partnership between the private sector and the public sector the other pup private sector does depend on our planning and development department to review their plans and okay the plans for any new construction that's going up they do rely on us to do some permitting and zoning work they do rely on the public health commissioner the public health department to make sure that restaurants are opening up in a safe way and that if there are situations where things are not safe public health goes in and respond so you can see this partnership between the private sector the public sector is important and always has been and so it will it will be difficult to open up part of the prize that piece of the economy without having the public side alongside that recovery and so I just want to emphasize this because I'm not sure everybody always connects the dots between what the what the work we do because it is relative to courts and jails and and the other really important things that we do but there are also these other side of of the of the house where we interact every day interact every day with a a private sector in one analogy I will use with you and again very grateful for the dollars that we received from the federal government to respond to covered nineteen so I liken it to sitting in your house you've got a mask on because you were able to purchase mass but you weren't able to pay the utility bill or the red ends or the mortgage and so you're sitting in the dark with a mask on so it's helpful but we're hoping to have additional help for just the basic services that the county provides so with that I'm going to turn it over to Jeff Aluko Jeff he has been talking to all of the department's remember their departments under the county and then there are departments led by public other elected officials throughout the county and so it is a can be a little challenging to get everyone to behave together in a coordinated fashion when it comes to some of these budgetary reductions that we've been talking about Jeff alluded the county administrator in the budget team have done that and so every county department in every department under an elected official is participating in the effort to bring down our expenses because we know we're going to have a hit when it comes to the revenue side so with that Jeff I'm going to turn it over to you.

"The commissioners salaried correct yes they hired him okay what if we made the commissioner more independent but he didn't want to water well what if this is safe for example an independent body was able to pick a commissioner who did not have to answer for the owners yeah and they they paid his salary we get a completely different situation you're absolutely right about that that's right and we couldn't be more independent and he couldn't push his opinion a lot better and make better decisions that have to answer to these owners right but the problem there Harry is they don't believe that the system is broken it's working just fine for them right now just fine everybody's making a fortune this is a blip on the radar and they're not gonna rock this boat how many times of all of us heard especially people who work in sports they got to do some about Goodell they got to do some about Manfred they're gonna do some about Seelig they don't have to do anything they don't have to do a thing what are you going to do C. until that's why I am not one of these people that that is going to say get over it if we don't show outrage we don't get change you know I made this analogy many times before but I'll make it again the reason we went nuts about Michael Vick and he was is vilified as anybody that I can remember in sports for a long time was because we know as human beings that if we don't protect dogs no one else will so we took the calls of the dogs and we took it because there was no chance anyone else was going to take so if we don't show outrage we won't stop Michael Vick's of the world from doing what they are what he did and by the way it's pretty damn successful because you haven't seen any stories about pro athletes abusing dogs since Michael Vick because you people said we're not putting up with that you've crossed the line with us and the argument we're having here is where is the line for people these days it is clearly children you abused children we feel the same way and you might say well that's ridiculous dogs and children once a comment what's the common denominator there's no representation for either without us if we don't if we don't protect the four year old no one else will if we don't protect the dog no one else will we're all they have there are no other options and that is part of the reason that we get passionate and very negative on people that abuse those that are unable to defend themselves in any way like the elderly like children like yes dogs and you saw what happened many people were shocked by our reaction as a nation to Michael Vick and the dog situation that we were so outraged what are we this outraged about people why aren't you know and that's why I just gave you my theory there's an inherent feeling of responsibility for those that can't protect themselves that's what it comes down to this isn't that right there's a lot of people like Paul believe that everyone's cheating in one way or the other and in the end she better get out you know to stop whining and figure out a way the beat the system like they did because you're not going to change it it's not the Paul wouldn't want it to go away completely he just doesn't think it will and many of you agree with them you don't think it's ever going away people are always going to find an edge they're always going to try to find one so if that's the case stop trying to beat it and just do a better job of doing it yourself and if I drive eighty on the way home tonight don't get caught simple as that so you know that's that's where we are I mean that's where we are it's what the story is such life Lewin Porchester up next on the fan I Lou Hey Chris Hey you know have you been around high level sports my whole life professional people many members my family and professional sports Mike my cousin just got hired as the the giants offensive line coach nice out from Dallas and I despite some kind of hypocritical but I I think it supports in in sometimes you know I'm a guy that likes to have lumbar region and and this particular thing might not happen today but what I'm getting at is that I think it's this soon we we've been able to kind of reconcile the the P. E. D. thanks but I think when it's a systemic situation it's the first one I can remember of modern times I think it would be confronted with I think there's going to be a different reaction I I've heard some host on the station say well you know the people in Houston you know they want that championship they're fine with it it was funny because there was a call from Houston and I know it's only one caller and he called and he said you know I kind apple polls of the city and he said you know his opinion was that people were pretty embarrassed and my point is that I think in politics and I'm like you I'm a cynic I'm a skeptic you know I'm I'm still I'm not the best but but but my optimism is based in Frankfort reality and and so I think in sports you know in politics and all these other walks of life we we expect that there's going to be what what goes on right but other times sold make your point so so anyway so the point is is that I think that the two people of Houston I think they're going to be verified I don't think they're going to enjoy this championship and I don't think they're going to enjoy their team infill somehow they're they're able to kind of get past this I I don't think it's what a lot of people think you that you know Hey I just want to win I think was sports is different and that systemic cheating it's kind of pointless but my bottom line it's it's kind of a punk thing and I think athletes really.

"All the time so was talking with a state insurance commissioner recently and we were talking about how auto insurers now no longer generally set rates based on your age male or female and your driving record and a lot of them in states where it's legal use your credit score is that your rates I've talked about that over the years but now insurers are customizing individual rates to individual people so this was something the insurance commissioner said there's just driving he and his staff crazy there people were having individualize rates but a lot of insurers now are drilling down where you could be quoted a completely different rate then let's say five hundred other people who live near you who are similar age similar driving history every one of you would be quoted a different rate why because insurers are buying data on you in the market place that tells them what kind of person you are in ways that let them know how much they can charge you okay so one thing that came out years ago and I shared with you has become much more refined but insurers are using data like how loyal you are to a particular company like let's say you stayed with the same cellular company for years and years and years of market that's wide open the you could switch repeatedly or various services you use products you buy are you brand loyal they know that you somebody buys generics you somebody buys brand names so the more you show a pattern being brand conscious and the more you show that you're a loyal to a particular company or brand they believe they can charge you far higher rates for your auto insurance I'm oversimplifying this but these are just some of the factors they're using to determine what they're gonna charge you yeah the thing is about this deep dive data that more and more auto insurers are using is that the data they crunch and how they value it and how they use it to set rates is different.

"Everybody the from the verge cast on this week's interview episode very timely are excellent policy reporter, McKenna Kelly joins me to talk to FCC Commissioner Jeffrey Starks. He is brand new. He's one of the newest commissioners AFC he was just appointed, I think a hundred days ago. The President Trump is a democrat Commissioner we talked to him about the T mobile sprint merger. But what's going on with ralway location, tracking robo calls all of the things FCC Commissioner has to think about is they manage our nation's various networks is big job. Commissioner Starks extremely chill dude, he got into it with us became Adam pretty hard really interesting interview the way he thinks about he was a DOJ lawyer before he really he thinks about things differently than I think other SEC people we've talked to and he really thinks about how to make sure accessing is, is equal for as many. So that's really interesting frame. Then we ask them a lot of China's spying on us through while they so check it out this. FCC Commissioner Jeffrey starts. We're here with SEC Commissioner Jeffrey Starks. Harry, sir. Great, great to be here on joined McKenna Kelley our policy reporter, happy me back. So I'm going to start with a real softball. It actually has a not even line. Good job. I like it. You're like the new guy. The FCC. Yes. Just started. Yes. Like five months ago. No. No. Not even I think I just crossed a one hundred. So about a little over three months. Okay. You're appointed by President Trump. Yes. Although I'm an democratic seat. And so I'm. You know, it's a recommendation from Senator Schumer to the president. The president then accepted the recommendation. So I was nominated by President Trump. I'm officially a presidential appointee confirmed by the Senate. But a democratic seat. Yes. So what does that day? Look like the point did you get a phone call? Is it like the Nobel prize? Like the middle of the night is a for the confirmation for the appointment. The appointment is at a letter does, like a does the military show up at your door for the dirty secret is there was a lot of lead up to actually getting the appointment. And so, you know, had to interview, of course, with Senator Schumer had to interview, of course, with folks in the White House. And so the actual appointment when it was accepted by the president. Yes. I did get a phone call that the president was going to nominate me who is a phone call from the phone call was from the head of PPO presidential personnel operations. I don't even know there was such thing. Yes. PPO. All right. I'm I've always been curious whenever whenever discusses. The mc. Canucks of that. I got to take you under the hood. It's good the PPO. I gotta find this person and then walk us through your back on all bit. So you're at the FCC before you litigated a pretty big net, neutrality case, just give people a sense of your history. Yes. So what Yale for law school? I'll, I'll start even further than that, which is right after undergrad worked for a couple of years in the private sector, and then worked for Illinois state Senate staff committee on which then a little known Senator daybreak Obama stat when he was a state Senator in Illinois and volunteered for his US senatorial campaign. And so I like to always say that I was giving him some some guidance on ways to votes, even way back when then went to Yale for law school graduate from there, worked in the private sector for a couple years, then joined the Obama administration where I was senior counsel to the deputy attorney general. So this is the Jim Cole was my boss, right? Under Eric Holder and handled a number of matters their civil some criminals, some national security matters. And then. Got brought over to the FCC were. Yes, I was working on universal service was working on early net neutrality cases. And then was this whole kind of appointment ended up happening? And then now of course, am I a full-blown Commissioner that CC? So were you like a telecom tech nerd before or you kinda slid into this world?.
