Salinas Underground

We tell the story of the city we grew up with by interviewing the people that make it what it is: the business people, the musicians, the scholars, anyone that adds to the culture of Salinas.

In this episode we play an interview we recorded with Watsonville Mayor Pro-Tem Felipe Hernandez. He talks with us very candidly about the reason behind the Watsonville Food Truck Festival and how their community rallied around the food trucks after a couple councilmembers tried to ban them. He also expresses his confusion around the citizens of Salinas allowing the city council to dictate how they can have fun in their city. We also talk about the recent tragic domestic violence shooting that left two people dead in south Salinas. Finally, we talk about The Californian switching over to a 3 day print cycle and how that is going to affect how people get their news in Salinas.
