TV: 1st, 3rd, IV Vote Scandal, New SBUSD Mess
Gwyn Lurie leads off this week’s edition of Newsmakers TV, with an inside look of how the deal went down as she moderated Monday night’s big Montecito Journal debate between Das Williams and Laura Capps at Hahn Hall
Delaney Smith and Josh Molina both covered the event and break down how it will impact the increasingly heated race for First District supervisor, as the gang offers their takes on the political theatre of Das planting himself directly in front of Laura during closing statements, a moment which infuriated some of her women supporters, who viewed it as a sexist cheap shot
Then Delaney reports on her scoop from the 3rd District, where Bruce Porter, who’s challenging incumbent Supe Joan Hartmann, financed a voter registration operation in Isla Vista with the actual mission of suppressing the pro-Joan vote in IV, and also provides an update on the latest parents-with-pitchforks protest against yet another ill-considered move by the suits at the SB school district.
It’s all here, right now, on Newsmakers TV.
