FROM THIS EPISODE

With three members leaving to run for Mayor, the LA City Council will see its biggest shake up in years. There will be seven new members of a 15-member body. We hear about three of those races. Also, a conversation with mayoral candidate Eric Garcetti. With a troubled city facing a deficit, will he list his priorities for what should be cut and what should be saved? Does he favor a tax increase? With the city in trouble, can an insider be trusted to make real change? On our rebroadcast of To the Point, is pre-school education being oversold?
