California Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. recently named USC Price School of Public Policy alumni Imran Farooq and Michael Kelly to serve on the California Workforce Investment Board. Established in 1998, the board is responsible for assisting the governor in setting and guiding policy related to workforce development.
The Los Angeles Times featured the USC Price/Los Angeles Times poll finding that 11 percent of likely voters are still undecided in the Los Angeles mayoral race. “The San Fernando Valley ought to be Wendy Greuel’s base, both ideologically and biographically. But the perception of her ties to public employee unions is hurting her badly among independents and Republicans,” said Dan Schnur of the USC Dornsife College. The poll found that candidate Wendy Greuel lags seven percentage points behind Eric Garcetti, and that nearly half of likely voters favored the city fixing roads and freeways rather than public transportation. The Los Angeles Times ran a live chat about the poll. The story was also covered by two more Los Angeles Times stories (second link here), CNN, KPCC-FM in two stories (second link here), National Journal, Reuters, the Huffington Post, L.A. Weekly, two L.A. Observed stories (second link here), ABC News Los Angeles affiliate KABC-TV, Fox News Los Angeles affiliate KTTV-TV, the Los Angeles Daily News, the Daily Beast, CBS News Los Angeles affiliate KCBS-TV and CW News Los Angeles affiliate KTLA-TV.
