Elections Matter: What's at Stake for California in November?

This event is the latest in our member-led forums’ Crisis in Our Country summer series. 

Join us for an enlightening evening with four seasoned California political journalists who will share their insights on the upcoming all-important November 6 general election. They will explain the state's major issues, take audience members inside the politics of the campaign and discuss what's at stake as voters decide who will occupy California's highest office. This November, voters will also select the new superintendent of public instruction, the attorney general, 100 state legislators and 53 U.S. representatives. The moderator, Dave Lesher, is co-founder, CEO, and editor in chief of CALmatters, the nonpartisan state news nonprofit that now has the biggest statehouse news team in the area. The discussion will be followed by a question and answer session.
