TV: Fearless Forecasts & Political Poltergeists
Newsmakers TV returns with a special night-of-the-living-dead episode featuring a boiling cauldron of devil-in-the-details policy analysis and spooky prophecies guaranteed to trigger the most frightful nightmares of city council candidates running for their political lives.
Sorry, got kinda carried away there.
Josh Molina leads off the conversation with a look at the city’s recent clean streets initiatives, which some social welfare advocates portray as a declaration of war on the homeless, and the big news that the Salvation Army has withdrawn its controversial housing project on the Eastside.
Then Delaney Smith provides an inside look at the rare unanimous vote by which City College Trustees selected Dr. Utpal K. Goswami as SBCC’s new president, and offers her take on how he’ll do in coping with looming huge headaches over finances and allegations of racism on campus.
Police and Fire Commissioner Lizzie Rodriguez kicks off a lively round-the-table debate and discussion, as we handicap the Districts 1 and 2 council races, closing with punditry and prognostications about who will be the winners, losers and also-rans when all the votes are counted.
It’s all here, right now on Newsmakers TV.
