The 2020 California Primary election is underway. In San Luis Obispo County, almost 80 percent of voters do so by mail, and by now, most have received their ballots. Over the next few weeks, KCBX News will be airing interviews with many of the candidates appearing on Central Coast ballots. On this week’s Issues and Ideas, we talk to four candidates running for the San Luis Obispo County board of supervisors.
We hear from District 3 incumbent Adam Hill and his challenger Stacy Korsgaden. We also speak with Ellen Beraud, running for the District 5 seat against incumbent Debbie Arnold.
Later in the program, Beth Thornton sits down with educators from the SLO County Food Bank to discuss the topic of food literacy, and how education can empower the community to make healthier choices for ourselves and the environment.
We also hear another segment from The 805, KCRW's podcast featuring stories about the Central Coast.
