Please Join Me in Sacramento Tuesday, Oct. 14

It'll be a tough day for someone who enjoys being a critic, but on Tuesday morning in Sacramento, I'll actually be proposing a solution to a problem. The problem is California's initiative process. New America, the foundation that employs me, is hosting an event entitled, "Blockbuster Democracy." The full details are here. (Please click the link and you can sign up to attend on the right-hand side of the web page).

It begins at 9:30 a.m. at the California State Association of Counties, 1020 11th Street, 2nd floor. I'll speak beginning at 9:45 a.m. Also offering ideas for how to improve California's direct democracy are Bob Stern of the Center for Governmental Studies; Rick Jacobs of the Courage Campaign, Tony Rubenstein, a longtime initiative entrepreneur, and my New America colleague, senior scholar Mark Paul, who will talk about the impact of initiatives on California's troubled finances. Lunch is provided--there will be a question and answer session at lunchtime.
