On KOCT - North County’s Channel

Tune to KOCT - Channel 18, Thursday, April 6th at 6pm to view this episode of Journalist Roundtable. We have invited the following three local Government representatives:

County of San Diego Supervisor - 5th District, Bill Horn, delivered his annual State of North County address on Tuesday. We will get a recap of his presentation and discuss current issues and his priorities as North County’s representative of County Government.

Oceanside Councilmember Jerry Kern serves on the Community Engagement Panel of the decommissioning of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS). We will discuss the progress thus far as well as the advancement toward moving the remaining nuclear fuel from the site.

Councilmember Cori Schumacher is the newest member of the Carlsbad City Council. We will learn about her life and career as a pro surfer and what motivated her to run for City Council. We will ask her why she was the lone vote against a proposal in Carlsbad to log and capture the identity of every vehicle which enters the City of Carlsbad. We will also discuss last year’s tumultuous vote when a Los Angeles developer proposed to build a mall on Carlsbad’s strawberry fields.

The host of this long-running monthly series is Kent Davy, the former Editor for the North County Times. He will be joined by Alison St. John, the KPBS North County Bureau Editor, and North County Editor for the San Diego Union-Tribune, Melanie Marshall.
