Eric Swalwell Interview on May 23rd at 11:30 AM State, National, International, posted by San Ramon Observer, a resident of San Ramon, on May 22, 2012 at 4:54 pm San Ramon Observer is a member (registered user) of PleasantonWeekly.com
My Blogtalkradio show is back Wednesday morning, May 23rd, at 11:30 am with [Web Link an interview with Eric Swalwell]. Swalwell is running against long-time Democrat Representative Pete Stark in the newly redistricted 15th District. Here's my teaser for the show:
"Dublin City Councilman, Eric Swalwell, is running against 20-term Congressman, Fortney Pete Stark, in the newly redistricted 15th District.
Can the ant topple the hippo? We shall ask Swalwell what his chances are against Stark and about some of the accusations against him in the Around Dublin blog.
Is this just a grandstand attempt at name recognition, or does Swalwell have a chance to thwart Stark's reelection in the June 5th primary and make it into a 2-man race in November.
Tune in and find out."
The interview will be recorded for listening to later. I plan to interview Stark's other opponent, Chris Pareja, at 11:30 am on May 30th.

Someone who cares,
Congressional Districts are reconfigured every 10 years based on the current census. So that's probably why Livermore was in the District in 1973.
Also the numbers are confusing since those move around too. Stark's District was #13 and is now #15, but about half of #13 is part of #15. San Ramon was in District #11, but now we are in #15. So trying to compare old numbers with new numbers doesn't work either.
