Santa Monica Daily Press Publisher Ross Furukawa conducts a one on one conversation with Barbi Appelquistin anticipation of the upcoming election for California State Senator, 26th District.

Barbi Appelquist cites the personal background she would bring to Sacramento as a mom and two time cancer survivor, professional experience as an attorney and valedictorian at Pepperdine for public policy, as well as a community advocate for micro-business and ‚Äìfinance and for responsible development. She feels runaway production is a “very big issue for our entire state,” and has a four-part solution involving 5 per cent bumps in credits for productions filming outside LA (“this has to be something the whole state can benefit from”) and for those employing veterans, including post-production in the formula, and increasing substantially the pool of credits available.
