San Jose is the wealthiest city in the country, according to data released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau. But despite the rosy income data, the Bay Area's largest city and its mayor are facing serious challenges. For one, crime is on the rise and the police chief just unexpectedly announced his resignation. Mayor Chuck Reed joins us in a special broadcast from KQED Silicon Valley to talk about his plan to put more cops on the street, and to shore up the city budget.
