  • Oregon Sen. Sara Gelser and Stand for Children Oregon executive director Toya Fick talk about the future of Measure 98, which would pay for career and technical education in Oregon high schools, but may not receive funding.
  • Chris Lehman, OPB political reporter based in Salem, gives you the skinny about Gov. Kate Brown’s new proposed budget.
  • We talk with Jim Bernard, newly elected board chair for Clackamas County, about the ouster of conservatives John Ludlow and Tootie Smith, and what his and Ken Humberston’s election says about the county and its approach to urban planning and governing more broadly.
  • Artist Sabina Haque joins us to talk about her exhibition “Annexation & Assimilation along 82nd Ave.” She will be doing an artist talk at the Jade/APANO Multicultural Space on Dec. 5 from 6 to 8 p.m.
