POLITIFACT CA: Fact-Checking Claims From California's 7th Congressional District Debate

Fact checks from Rep. Ami Bera and Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones during this week's 7th Congressional District debate.

Dear Member,
   This has been an incredibly productive and exciting year for KRCB as we seek to chart a new course for North Bay Public Media. Of course, we continued our 20-year tradition of extensive election coverage in both June and November; thanks to huge efforts by News Director Bruce Robinson we interviewed the candidates in all contested City Council races throughout Sonoma County.

   The year brought another Emmy for our Natural Heroes and a record number of PBS stations carrying the series.  Our series on “Watersheds in the North Bay” has met with very positive responses, and our live presentation of the opening weekend concerts at the Green Music Center went off without a hitch. And the premiere of our coproduction Rebels With A Cause is being followed by film festivals and screenings (details opposite page).

   Our Health Connections community and programming initiatives are taking shape as we work with the County of Sonoma, KBBF-FM, and Community Action Partnership.  We are reaching out to the business and philanthropic community for support for this multi year initiative building on the good work of the County’s Health Action Council.

All in all, we feel we are charting a course into a new future for public media, expanding the nature of our service to community.  Your continued support and contributions will help bring this vision of the future into reality.
