Insight: Sacramento Mayor and City Council Race / Healthcare Taskforce / Slow Food / Rail Tales


 
 
Sacramento Mayor and City Council Races More than 20 people are vying for the Mayor's seat and four Sacramento City Council seats in this Tuesday's election.  District 2 and District 4 are possibly the closest watched council races since Rob Fong and Sandy Sheedy have decided not to run for reelection and neither district has an incumbent candidate. Senior Staff Writer for the Sacramento News and Review, Cosmo Garvin, has been profiling the candidates and joins us to explain which candidates are running strong and which are falling by the wayside.  If you'd like to see a one-minute video of each candidate explaining why you should elect them, click HERE.

Rail Tales Brian Green has been riding Sacramento Regional Transit Light Rail for most of two decades, but it was only in the last few years - with the advent of portable electronic devices and social media outlets - that he decided to post stories to Facebook about all the unique people he interacts with everyday.  When Brian accumulated more than 600 friends and 200 posts on Facebook he decided to write 'Rail Tales.'  The book is 100 pages and consists of small stories/vignettes - laid out by month.  It also includes random photos Brian has taken on light rail train rides throughout Sacramento. We joined Brian on his normal commute route and asked him to explain the inspiration for his tales. Brian will be selling and signing copies of his book at Midtown Village Cafe/Coffeehouse on Saturday, June 9.
