There were two great segments today on 89.3 KPCC's Patt Morrison show that involved minority communities. One examined why it is that the residents of some of Los Angeles County's poorest cities (including Bell, where city officials earn six-figure salaries) pay some of the highest property taxes.
Another segment dealt with prospective Latino voters in San Bernardino, caught in a political battle over voter registration. Latinos are a growing population in the county, yet they fall dramatically short of other San Bernardino County residents in voter registration and election day turnout. Who should take the lead in contacting them to register to vote and ensuring they turn out for elections? Audio from both segments is online.
