EPISODE 89 – DANIELLE SANDOVAL FOR COUNCIL DISTRICT 15

In our 89th episode, we’re joined by longtime community leader Danielle Sandoval (@sandoval_for), a third-generation Angelena and mother of three children who is also currently running to represent Council District 15. We discuss the history of CD-15, especially Watts and the 1965 rebellion, and how L.A. Mayor Yorty’s refusal to create job programs in the community with federal dollars available at the time only fueled tensions leading up to, parallel to what’s happened to available COVID-19 relief money for communities over the last two years. We also note L.A. Ethics Commission data showing that Tim McOsker, another candidate for CD-15, has received more than $500,000 in campaign contributions from special interest groups; McOsker has also been endorsed by the outgoing incumbent for the office, Joe Buscaino, who’s occupied the seat for CD-15 since 2012.
