Hey everyone, this is Tallon, and you are tuned into KWDC, Stockton. What’s up my beautiful people? This is the one and only Tallon Pedregosa and this week’s news takes us to an important project that’s happening in Stockton.
“For myself it would improve me by not struggling so hard each month there would be bills that I could pay more freely and easier without thinking, ‘Okay, well I guess I’ll just have to pay half this month.’ I’d be able to pay some bills and pay them in full.”
This is Brenda. Born in Oakland but has been in Stockton since 1966. She believes it’s a good program if it’s used in the right way.
“If the money is given to someone who’s truly going to use it in a way that’s going to benefit their home, their family, then that’s great. But my problem that I’m having is whose watching over the money that’s being spent? You know $500. You go to Jackson each time you get it and you waste it so what’s the benefit out of this program? That’s where I’m having a problem. Who’s watching over how the money is being spent? “
Brenda comes from a low income family. Even though she questions the SEED project about how the money could be spent, Brenda says it would definitely help her out a lot.
“No because an interview, you can say what you want on an interview. That doesn’t mean what you’re telling the person is true. If you’re going to interview somebody, they’re going to tell you what they think you want to hear. It may not be the truth. That’s my only big problem. But as far as giving it to somebody that’s truly going to benefit from it, I think it’s a good idea.”
Thanks for tuning in to Delta College Radio, here on KWDC 93.5.
