Valley Politics


[Episode #44: August 2018]

In August, we talk with Maya Esparza and Tam Nguyen, the runoff candidates for San Jose City Council District 7 in the November election, an important race because the winner will be a swing vote on the city council on key issues.

In Community News, Esther Peralez-Dieckmann tells us about the work of Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence; and on “Where Are They Now?” we’ll meet Bea Robinson Mendez, a longtime community activist and the founder of San Jose’s first organization to address domestic violence.
