City Controller Candidates Debate
Listen to/Watch entire show:
City Councilman Dennis Zine is the best-known candidate for City Controller, but he's not available for WWLA? between now and election day. We hear a debate between the two candidates who want to force Zine into a runoff, and find out what the City Controller's office is all about. Also, KCRW's Matt Holtzman takes us to the top of Los Angeles City Hall for a look at portraits of past Mayors, including a cop, a gambler, a confidence man and a Mayor who resigned and was re-elected after leading a lynch mob. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, more than half American workers aren't saving enough. We hear about the retirement squeeze.

The Race for City Controller ()
Wendy Greuel's campaign for Mayor leaves a vacancy in the office of the Los Angeles City Controller. But it's safe to say that a lot of voters don't know what the Controller does. City Councilman Dennis Zine is the best known candidate for Controller and has raised the most money, but he's made himself unavailable for our program between now and Election Day. His opponents are Ron Galperin and Cary Brazeman.
- Ron Galperin: attorney, @RonGalperin
- Cary Brazeman: founding CEO of a public relations firm, @carybrazeman
A Rogue's Gallery of Former Los Angeles Mayors ()
Next Tuesday is the primary for the 42nd Mayor of Los Angeles since the city was incorporated as part of California in 1850. At City Hall, KCRW's Matt Holzman found past mayors have ranged from the good, to the bad and the ugly.
