October luncheon will feature an all-star lineup talking about the
hottest topics in a November election that promises to be one of
the most significant in recent years.
Will a so-called Blue Wave return Democrats to control of the House
of Representatives? Will Californians vote to do away with a gasoline
tax that is paying for a huge expansion of road repairs? And will
the expansion of rent control and changes in Prop. 13 pass muster
with the voters?
and a whole lot more will be answered by a panel that includes Dan
Morain, former editorial director of the Sacramento Bee
and now with CalMatters; Amy Chance, current chief
of the Bee’s Capitol Bureau; and Dr. Barbara O’Connor,
CSUS emeritus professor of communications studies and former director
of the university’s Institute for the Study of Poliics and
Media. The discussion, in a Q&A format, will be moderated by
longtime political reporter and author Steve Swatt.
There’ll be plenty of opportunity for questions from the audience.
also will talk about Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s bid for another
six-year term and the Democrats’ chances of turning the Senate,
too; the impact of the #metoo movement on the legislative races;
and the prospects for the city of Sacramento’s Measure U sales
