City Visions: Will Prop 15 Succeed in Amending Prop 13?

Sep 14, 2020


    Do you understand what Prop 15's proposed 'split roll' is? On our next show, we will dig into this question and examine the arguments for and against Prop 15. Is it an appropriate amendment to Prop 13, as supporters claim, or a deliberate weakening of an important protection for property owners? 

We will also hear an update on San Francisco's latest reopening guidelines and guest correspondent Sarah Ladipo Manyika's interview of Marin-based poet Jane Hirshfield.

Guests:

Susan Shelley - Columnist and member of the editorial board for the Southern California News Group and Vice President of Communications for the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association

Ben Grieff - Campaign Director and Spokesperson for Evolve California, which organizes grass-roots campaigns in support of middle-class and center-left Californians.

Jane Hirshfield - award-winning poet, essayist, founder of Poets for Science, and practitioner of Zen for over 40 years.  Her ninth book of poems, entitled Ledger, was published in March.  You can find Jane's work here.

Host:  Ethan Elkind

Guest Correspondent:  Sarah Ladipo Manyika

Producers:  Wendy Holcombe and Chris Nooney
