In Episode 63 of Downtown Depot, show host Austin Meek interviews Hector Sabido. Sabido, a south Waco native and the son of Mexican immigrants, discusses his plan for improving outcomes for District 2 residents whom he will serve as City Councilman beginning in May 2019. 

Before that interview, Meek steps into "The Chef's Corner" with Corey McEntyre, shines "The Small Business Spotlight" on Rufi's Cocina and hears the "Word on The Street" from Maggie Dietrich, one of the organizers of the upcoming Co-Town Collab.
