- Newsmaker: Supervisors Try to Kill Health Workers Ballot Item
The LA Board of Supervisors has been accused of violating the Brown Act in its handling of a proposed ballot initiative. The measure, which would raise the pay of health aides who care for the elderly in their homes, is backed by the Service Employees International Union. Union President Tyrone Freeman explains why the union filed suit with the District Attorney. Supervisor Yvonne Brathwaite Burke defends the Board's integrity.
