  • A Public Safety Realignment Panel

    Two years after Public Safety Realignment became law, counties continue to adjust to the responsibility of managing more people in their local justice systems. Meanwhile, the state is under court order to make further reductions to its prison population. Under such pressure, how can California reverse the decades-old trend of high incarceration and recidivism rates?

    Local, state and national experts shared their perspectives on the most effective methods to protect public safety.

    Our panel discussion featured:

    •    Lenore Anderson, Executive Director, Californians for Safety and Justice
    •    Bill Brown, Santa Barbara County Sheriff
    •    Nina Salarno Ashford, Crime Victims United
    •    Michele Scray Brown, Chief Probation Officer of San Bernardino County

  • The Future of Journalism – New Models for Newsrooms

    Over the past decade, the Sacramento press corp has lost dozens of journalists from traditional media outlets, but the Capitol remains one of the most vibrant places outside of Washington D.C. for political intrigue and groundbreaking policy debates. With printed newspapers in decline, what’s the best way to engage the people of California in stories that matter most? The audience is hungry for news about this dynamic state, but they are dispersed to a thousand places.

    Top media experts, Capital Public Radio’s Director of News and Information Joe Barr and the Center for Investigative Reporting’s Managing Editor Robert Salladay, are harnessing multimedia, animation, community projects, social media campaigns, even spoken-word poetry and stage plays based on journalism. Insight’s Beth Ruyak moderated the discussion about the need for strong innovation, community building, and audience engagement to create vitality in journalism across the state.

  • Sacramento Downtown Arena Debate

    All of Sacramento anxiously waited this spring to hear whether the NBA would approve a sale of the Sacramento Kings to a coalition of owners who promised to keep the team in town. Key to that successful effort led by Mayor Kevin Johnson was the city’s promise of a new sports complex for the team. As plans proceed, a group calling itself STOP, or Sacramento Taxpayers Opposed to Pork, is mounting a campaign to put the arena plan before voters.

    On Thursday, Aug. 22 the Sacramento Press Club hosted a debate about the proposed downtown arena. The discussion was moderated by Sacramento Bee reporter Ryan Lillis.

    Joshua Wood represented proponents of the new entertainment and sports complex. Wood is executive director of Region Builders, a commercial building industry trade association that launched DowntownArena.Org in July. The coalition of business, labor and civic groups is backing the project.

    Tab Berg, founder and president of TABcommunications Inc., a political and public relations firm, represented an informal coalition now circulating a petition that would put the use of taxpayer funds for the arena before voters.

  • Speaker of the California State Assembly John A. Pérez

    For the first time in a long time, the governor’s May revision of the budget is not foreshadowed by questions about how much the deficit has grown, but instead how big the surplus will be.

    That additional money gives lawmakers and the governor the opportunity to wrangle over restoring cuts to programs or making other major policy decisions that have been put off in previous years.

    At the center of the debate will be Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez, D-Los Angeles, our guest speaker at the May 8th luncheon. Speaker Pérez laid out his framework for a budget in a power point presentation titled “Blueprint for a Responsible Budget”. More photos and more information on the Speaker’s presenation coming soon. Photos below courtesy of the Assembly Democratic Caucus.

    The other highlight of the May 8th luncheon was the awarding of $34-thousand dollars in journalism scholarships. Congratulations to Matthew Blackburn, Brian Nguyen, Jennifer Chausee, Madeleine Thomas, Valerie Smith, Brittany Patterson and Julie Brown. Read more about them on our Scholarships page. More photos coming soon.

  • Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa

    After eight years leading California’s largest city, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will leave office in just a few months. When a major political figure exits one of the most important offices in the country, that person has a unique perspective that can’t be matched.

    The national Democratic figure and former Assembly Speaker was our featured guest at the Sacramento Press Club’s luncheon on April 16. Mayor Villaraigosa discussed education, immigration and his plans for after he leaves office. Scroll down for pictures from this event. Pictures from previous events here.

    Many people attending the luncheon gave their Twitter followers updates as Mayor Villaraigosa was speaking. Here’s a few of their Tweets:

  • Sacramento Bee Editorial Cartoonist Jack Ohman

    It’s a new day on the editorial page of the Sacramento Bee with arrival of cartoonist Jack Ohman, whose work was described by People magazine as “probably the most uncompromising, the most wicked and the most pointedly funny” out there.

    On Thursday, April 4 the Sacramento Press Club welcomed Mr. Ohman, who regaled us with funny tales and showed us some of his most interesting pieces. Ohman, the author and illustrator of 10 books, was a 2012 Pulitzer finalist while at the Oregonian. Before that, he worked at the Detroit Free Press and the Columbus Dispatch.
