Assemblywoman Shirley Weber On Being Named San Diegan Of 2019 And Legislative Work Ahead
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.
