Sacramento City Council District 4 candidate Joseph Yee is our guest this week on Sac Press Live, our weekly live streaming talk show that takes place every Wednesday at noon.
The live stream will be available here:
Ask questions by joining the conversation below this article.
Update: Steve Hansen issued the following statement in response to the chat:
"Contrary to the comments earlier of my competitor, I do support Measure U, the temporary sales tax, which has become a necessity in the face of increased crime and deteriorated parks. Further budget cuts will undermine basic services. The City must be cautious in maintaining a higher sales tax than the region for any longer than necessary and ensure that one time money is not spent structurally. The Council must also lead by example through strong oversight and controls to prevent abuse, which will be my focus, if elected."
We''ll follow-up with a full article soon.
Yee is running against Steve Hansen in the November election for the District 4 seat, which represents downtown and Midtown. Hansen will also be joining us for a chat on Sept. 26.
This is not Yee’s first experience with city politics – he served for a year on the City Council as an interim councilman in 2000. Yee has worked for more than 30 years as an architect and designed the West Sacramento Library and numerous educational facilities in the Sacramento region. He and his wife, Daphne, have lived in Land Park since 1976.
We'd like to hear from District 4 residents. What issues are important to you when it comes to the city of Sacramento? What should the city government be doing more of, and where does it need to cut back? What improvements are you looking for? What questions do you want answered?
When it comes to Yee – what specifically do you want to hear from him?
If you think there is a question or an issue the press hasn't brought up in this City Council election, now is your chance to do it. Post your comments and questions in the conversation below this article and we'll use whatever input we get during the interview.
