Kevin Johnson likes challenges.   He rose out of the struggling Oak Park neighborhood to become an NBA All-Star.  Then, he poured millions of dollars into redeveloping that community.  And now, he wants to lead the city of Sacramento.  He’s Mayor Heather Fargo’s biggest competition in the June election.  We spoke with Fargo last week (see link at right); now, here's our interview with Kevin Johnson, who sat down with KXJZ’s Ben Adler on Tuesday.
