Valley Politics


[Episode #28: April 2017]

In the studio, we catch up on the State of the County with Supervisor Dave Cortese, who just started an unprecedented third consecutive term as President of the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors.

In Community News, Ruth Herrera briefs us on the San Jose Conservation Corps and Charter School. And finally, In “Where are They Now?”, we talk to Mort Levine, who along with his wife Elaine, published the weekly Sun Newspapers, in a dozen communities in, and around, San Jose, from the 1950s to the 1980s. These newspapers were a crucial alternative to the Mercury News and gave voice to a new generation of community leaders.
