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.

What goes into a city budget?  What are the priorities that are considered in that budget, how long does a budget take to write, and how many people need to be spoken to before a budget can be presented?  These aren't questions that we can just google and find the answers to easily, so this week Dom speaks to Matt Pressey, Salinas Finance Director.  Listen in to this episode and learn more about the way our city pays its bills and what the challenges are for Salinas to budget accurately from year to year.  Feel free to let us know what you think after as you Call It What You Will Salinas!
