In the thick of strike-mode is our first guest Ada Briceno, Co-President of UNITE-HERE Local 11, representing over 30,000 hotel workers, 60 hotels in Los Angeles County, Orange County and Arizona.
In the second segment (approx. minute 29:00), Youssef Kaddeche, transportation commissioner for Irvine City Council member Kathleen Treseder, talks e-bikes in around town; the software and the hardware of it all.

Karriann Farrell Hinds, CA President of the National Women’s Political Caucus, examines state and local races with women running in the Midterm elections 2022. Lots of ground moving under the campaigns with all the red dot blue state action here.
In the second segment (minute 28:17), returning to the show is UCI professor Kathleen Treseder, this time as a full-on candidate for Irvine City Council; energy, climate goals, and democracy are on the City Council ballot. An Irvine candidate forum will be hosted by Irvine Watchdog and moderated by our very own Prof Richard Matthew, Sept 29th 7pm. That might be necessary since not every candidate makes it possible for me to reach them for these nice little interviews I do over here. Kathleen Treseder will be our first look under those local candidates’ hoods.

Especially selected for this program are three guests whom are serving locally: Huntington Beach Councilwoman Rhonda Bolton, Garden Grove City Mayor Pro-tem Kimberly Nguyen, and UCI Professor and announced candidate for Irvine City Council Kathleen Treseder. They take up the Congressional censure of the AZ Republican Congressional member responsible for his grim gestures threatening Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. His name is not mentioned so as not to further amplify this individual’s hazards that he continues to represent and perpetuate. These three women were chose given the the particular challenges with which they have been contending with in their professional lives.
