In this conversation, Zoom brings me a virtual sit down with State Senator Holly J. Mitchell (D-Los Angeles), who in her tenth years in the Legislature is the influential chair of the Senate Budget Committee. She represents a socioeconomically and demographically diverse district the includes downtown LA, wealthy areas to the west around Century City, and south along the 110 corridor to South Los Angeles. We talk about the district, the COVID-19 impact there, her background, police reform, and some of her proudest moments in the Legislature.
