On this episode, I have the privilege of interviewing the mayor of Central City, Kathryn Heider. The first woman mayor of the 159-year-old town, Kathy shares how she got involved in city government, some cool stories about Central City and the historic home she lives in, how the opera and the city co-exist, and her hopes and dreams for Central City, including its recent acquisition of the historic Belvidere Theater.
