In The Studio: How These Twenty-Somethings Won Seats On City Councils

Oct 4, 2019

If you look closely at local governments in the San Joaquin Valley, you’ll find a handful of city council members in their early twenties. One even ran and won as a 19-year-old. In the studio this week, moderator Kathleen Schock spoke with three of these local city councilmembers: Jewel Hurtado of Kingsburg, Bryan Osorio of Delano, and Esmeralda Hurtado of Sanger. 

Listen to the panel interview above about why the three chose to run at such a young age and the challenges they face now that they are in office.
