Valley Politics


[Episode #32: August 2017]

The August episode takes a look at a new force in local, state and national politics – people, not previously involved in politics, who were inspired to activism by the election of Donald Trump.

Terry talks with Celeste Walker of Orchard City Indivisible, and Carly Hasbrook of Swing Left, who represent local chapters of national groups, about what they hope to achieve in the Valley.

In Community News, Kathleen King briefs us on the work of the Healthier Kids Foundation, and finally in Where Are They Now, Terry talks with Larry Jinks editor of The Mercury News from 1977-1981, and who later served as publisher.

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

  • Where Are They Now? – catching up with retired leaders who made a difference in our community
