Government reform town hall coming up

From Assemblymember Beall's office:


 If California’s state government undergoes reform, what changes will be made? How will those changes affect our lives? Will California’s massive problems actually be solved?

As the Legislature’s leadership puts forward a package of reforms, Assemblymember Jim Beall is sponsoring a town hall to examine and discuss the gargantuan task of overhauling a sprawling government that serves 38 million people and regulates the world’s eighth biggest economy.

Guest speaker Thad Kousser, a University of California-San Diego political science professor and a visiting fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institute will review the government reform initiatives circulating and being discussed in Sacramento. He will also review the results of a multi-lingual poll that ask Californians what they think are the problems and solutions to our biggest challenges.

Kousser is a recognized authority on state government and California constitutional reform.


6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday, April 8
