Insight: Redistricting North Oak Park / Steve Cohn / Meklit Hadero / Sound Advice: Off Air


Redistricting North Oak Park The Sacramento City Council decided on a plan that would take UC Davis Med Center out of the District 5 and put it in District 6. We'll talk about what the change might mean with Michael Boyd, President of the Oak Park Neighborhood Association, and Gordon Olson, former President of the Elmhurst Neighborhood Association.
 
Steve Cohn Sacramento City Councilman Steve Cohn has placed himself at the forefront of the city's redistricting process by introducing his own redistricting map even though a citizen's advisory group produced four maps for the council to choose from.  Now, "some pundits," according to Cohn in a Sacramento Bee op-ed piece, are wondering why the city council bothered to get public input on redistricting if council members aren't going to listen.  We'll speak with Cohn about his role in the redistricting process and the current debate over which district will have the UC Davis Med Center.
 
Meklit Hadero Born in Ethiopia, raised in the U.S. and nurtured by San Francisco's richly diverse arts scene, Meklit Hadero embodies worlds with her jazz, soul style that stays close to her East African roots.  Hadero will be performing at Sophia's Kitchen in Davis tonight and The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley Friday.
