In case you missed our recent broadcast program on the question of “Is California Governable?” you can listen to the both the KPCC broadcast and the subsequent Q&A session.

Community Advocates hosted the discussion together with the National Center for the Preservation of Democracy and NPR station KPCC.

The panelists were outstanding and the discussion illuminating—-each participant was familiar with the realities of politics, finance and the “real world.” They were former Speaker of the Assembly Bob Hertzberg, former State Senator and Director of the Department of Finance, Steve Peace, president of the California Federation of Teachers, Martiy Hittleman, and president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers’ Association, Jon Coupal. The moderator was Larry Mantle of KPCC’s Airitalk.
