'ABC7 Listens' visits Riverside

July 17, 2012 12:00:00 AM PDT
For the past seven years, our top executives have been holding community meetings at events called ABC7 Listens to get the pulse of the public.

Inland Empire Bureau Chief Rob McMillan moderated a town hall meeting in Riverside on Monday, where city officials and residents conveyed their concerns to an ABC7 executive panel headed by President and General Manager Arnold J. Kleiner.

The big issues included the city's financial problems and crime. There have been three recent homicides in Riverside.

Kleiner began the meeting with a tribute to longtime Inland Empire Bureau Chief Bob Banfield, who passed away last month after a long battle with cancer.
