Call It What You Will Salinas


Welcome to Call It What You Will.  This is a show that focuses on politics and social issues here in Salinas and our neighboring communities.  We aim to provide interviews that give listeners a more in-depth perspective on local leaders in government and the community.  We are not limited by the word count of a newspaper article or the time constraints of a tv news report.  We are simply some people sitting at a table having a conversation that we hope you find interesting and most of all, informative.  

Our show usually has two formats.  When we have a guest, our show focuses on having those conversations that we hope bring you a better understanding of the politics and social issues of our community.  When we don't have a guest, we tend to just sit around the table and have those random conversations about politics that happen when one sits at a bar sharing a few drinks with friends.

This week we speak to Jose Castaneda, former Alisal School Board Member, and City Council member.  We spent a lot of time talking about education with Jose and his views on what has worked and not worked here in Salinas.  As a former school board member, Jose gives us his perspective on why it is important for parents to get involved with school site councils and other ways parents or members of the community can get involved in education.  We also spoke about the need for campaign finance reform and why Jose did little fundraising for his City Council campaigns.  Jose gives us his opinion on why it was so important to state for the record his concerns when on the council and why it is important that people not become tired in the movement to improve Salinas.
