City Controller hopefuls Dennis Zine and Ron Galperin sat down with Warren Olney on "Which Way, LA?" to debate issues in the race. They are both trying to persuade voters they will continue the role of controller as watchdog of city spending, even though that is kind of an exaggerated image. The show also had on Raphael Sonenshein, the professor who had been executive director of the Charter Reform Commission that re-designed the Controller's job, to explain what it is the controller does.
