This week my piece in the L.A. Jewish Journal focuses on the two Iranian Jewish candidates for the Beverly Hills City Council, a race this year that has not generated as much excitement and buzz as the previous February 2007 race. Our podcast program had a chance to chat with the two candidates, Fran Cohen and Michael Hakim about their strategies in winning one of the three open spots on the Council. We also chatted briefly with Jimmy Delshad, the only Iranian Jew on the Beverly Hills City Council and previous city mayor on his impressions of the current candidates.
