She is going to San Francis-
co this week to se up a radio
center, before joining the sen-
ator's travelling staff. "Setting
up a center requires getting ahe
equipment, contacting local sta-
tions to see if they'll use our
feeds, and finding people to
coordinate the center's activi-
ties," said Goldberg.
Goldberg feels that radio has
become an increasingly import-
ant media and will prove valu-
able in this election. "People
are hearing decisions made on
the news . . - politics are com-
ing out into the open much
more, and people are listening,"

Govern in March and helped in
