That California's government is seriously broken is apparent to observers on all points of the political spectrum. A much lauded new compilation Remaking California: Reclaiming the Public Good presents the analysis of leading writers and scholars who "probe the roots of this crisis, trace its effects on people's lives and the environment, and propose reforms to remedy problems and restore the state's democratic promise."
The book's editor and three contributors will be on hand for an upcoming panel discussion organized by the Center for Sacramento History and the Sacramento History Foundation. The event features Dr. Jeffrey Lustig, CSUS professor of government; Dan Walters, Bee political columnist; Lenny Goldberg, California Tax Reform Association Executive Director; and Osha Meserve, Sacramento attorney specializing in environmental concerns.
