Next Steps on the Road to Reform: Davis Groups Explores Options

Share:

The Davis–based government reform group, Saving California Communities ( SCC ), will sponsor its second annual day-long forum, Saving California Communities: Next Steps? on Saturday, May 15 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. The purpose of the forum is to assess the current state of affairs and to help chart a course for the future of communities throughout California . Admission is free, and all members of the public are welcome to attend. Continental breakfast and lunch are included.

Saving California Communities consists of a local coalition of elected representatives and a wide cross section of community members.  Members of the group are united voices for strong, healthy communities in Davis and throughout California .
“Driven by the desire for change, our group hosted a one-day forum in May 2009 to increase awareness of the local impacts of state dysfunction; to build knowledge and understanding of reform efforts underway; and to explore opportunities for collaboration among communities,” according to SCC  member, and Davis Mayor Pro-Tem, Don Saylor.

One hundred and fifty people joined this discussion, and participants identified two key goals: deepening the understanding of various reform proposals and linking the Davis effort to groups within Yolo County and around the state.

Speakers for the May 15th event include:

Jim Mayer, executive director of California Forward, updating the group’s effort, which SCC has formally endorsed

Mac Taylor, Legislative Analyst, looking to the future of California without reform

Dan Morain, Sacramento Bee columnist, providing historical and political context for the reform effort

Delaine Eastin, former California Superintendent of Public Instruction, on the continuing need for courage, vision and heart

The League of Women Voters joins SCC in sponsoring this event at the new UC Davis Conference Center at the Vanderhoef Plaza near the Mondavi Center .  Free parking is available in the Mondavi lots.   

Other sponsors include UC Davis, California Forward, Davis Community Network and the Stuart Foundation.

Space is limited.  To be included in the lunch count, please RSVP by May 12.  For more information, contact info@savingCA.org, visit www.SavingCA.org, or call (530)304-6360.
