VOICES: River City, Episode 156: Councilmember Katie Valenzuela discusses the city manager vote

[NOTE: We’ve unlocked this special Friday episode for public consumption]

We’re joined today by Councilmember Katie Valenzuela to discuss the city’s controversial vote to give City Manager Howard Chan a 21 percent raise. The vote was unanimous–meaning that both progressive councilmembers Valenzuela and Mai Vang landed in favor of it–raising the ire of a number of progressives.

We also briefly touch on the inner workings of the city, and how hard Valenzuela had to push to get the police ‘use of force’ vote on the agenda.

Thanks for listening, defund the police and, as always:
