California’s Future Is At Stake
In this era of “spin” and media manipulation, it is rare to have the opportunity to transcend the fog of dissembling and get a glimpse of what really goes on in the world of politics and government.
Next week, Community Advocates is co-hosting with the National Center for the Preservation of Democracy and NPR station KPCC a “mock constitutional convention” for California.
What could and should state leaders do to insure that the fiasco and disarray that we witnessed in Sacramento over the past six months never occur again?
We have a panel of experienced leaders for this to-be-broadcast program who are familiar with the realities of politics, finance and the “real world”—-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, Marty Hittelman, and president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers’ Association, Jon Coupal. The moderator is Larry Mantle of KPCC’s Airtalk.
If you want to learn about what really is going on and how California can fix it, come to the
National Center for the Preservation of Democracy (111 North Central Avenue in Little Tokyo) next Wednesday, August 12th, at 7:00 PM
