Valley Politics


[Episode #56: August 2019]

In our August Valley Politics we ask longtime downtown commercial real estate broker Mark Ritchie whether downtown San Jose is about to take off–or will it continue to struggle? Then Councilmember Raul Peralez tells us what’s going on in his downtown district and former Councilmember Margie Matthews reminisces about her time on the city council in the 1990s and again in 2015.

Valley Politics is a fresh and informative perspective on Silicon Valley’s politics and public policy. Each episode features four segments including:

  • Silicon Valley hot topic with guest experts
  • Community News – a briefing from local nonprofit organizations
  • Where Are They Now? – catching up with retired leaders who made a difference in our community
  • People’s Opinion – on-the-street reporter gathers opinions on current topics in different areas


The show airs every Wednesday at 8PM PST and Saturday at 9PM PST. New episodes air the first Wednesday of every month.
