[Episode #57: September 2019]
Our September Valley Politics features County Assessor Larry Stone explaining how our property tax bills are calculated, how the biggest corporations in the Valley regularly challenge his assessments, and the prospects for reform of Proposition 13. Then he switches from assessor to political activist and reveals his pick for the Democratic presidential nomination. In District News, San Jose Councilmember Dev Davis fills us in on her Willow Glen district and for Where Are They Now? we talk with Becky Morgan, the former county supervisor and state senator who was instrumental in getting Highway 85 completed and also made history as the first woman to wear trousers in the state legislature.
