San Diego Assemblywoman Shirley Weber was recently named San Diegan of the year for 2019 by The San Diego Union-Tribune. In selecting her for the honor, the paper cited her work on a landmark bill regulating the use of lethal force by law enforcement.
As she heads into the next legislative session, Weber said she's especially concerned about what she calls "education accountability" — holding school districts accountable for state dollars meant to help underprivileged students.
Weber joined Midday Edition to talk about those and a number of other issues, including a controversy over depicting her as a cartoon in the Union-Tribune.
