Northridge, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
As Los Angeles inches closer to electing a new mayor, there remains much discussion over the issues facing the next leader of L.A. Two experts on Los Angeles politics will meet to discuss the political future of the city on April 16 (starting at 6:30 p.m.) at the 2013 Envisioning California Lecture at California State University, Northridge’s Little Theater in Nordhoff Hall, located at 18111 Nordhoff St., Northridge, CA 91330.
CSUN’s Center for Southern California Studies will host, “A Conversation with Larry Mantle and Raphael Sonenshein: The Los Angeles Mayor’s Race,” at 6:30 p.m. followed by a reception at 7:45 p.m. where guests can meet with the experts in an informal context.
“Because Los Angeles is such a big place, it’s hard for casual observers to understand what challenges are facing the next mayor of L.A.,” said CSUN history professor Josh Sides, director of the university’s Center for Southern California Studies. “We’ll have two leading experts on L.A. and L.A. politics sharing their insights on the elections.”
The lecture will feature Larry Mantle, the host of AirTalk on KPCC Southern California Public Radio, which is now the longest continuously running daily talk program in the Los Angeles radio market. Mantle has interviewed thousands of prominent guests on various topics and has received many journalistic awards in the process.
Joining Mantle in the conversation will be Raphael Sonenshein, executive director of the Pat Brown Institute for Public Affairs at California State University, Los Angeles. He is the author of three books on Los Angeles politics and government.
“These two men will be illuminating what the top issues are in the upcoming elections in an entirely nonpartisan and non-recommending way,” Sides said.
