    Post-Election Breakdown with Mark & Mark

    It’s a Sacramento Press Club tradition and the hottest ticket in town: The Sacramento Press Club welcomed Mark DiCamillo of the Field Poll and Mark Baldassare of the Public Policy Institute of California as they discussed one of the most fascinating elections in recent memory. In addition to the much-discussed presidential race, California voters were weighing a massive slate of hot-button ballot initiatives and competitive congressional and legislative races. Mark and Mark discussed what factors were in play in California this November, whether the presidential race played any role in California’s contested down-ticket races, and how the pollsters did at predicting the eventual outcome.

    Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom luncheon & Presidential Debate Watch Party

    Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom Luncheon

    Before he zeroes in on his run for governor in 2018, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is busy with two measures on the November 2016 ballot to legalize recreational use of marijuana and tighten the state’s gun laws for background checks and large-capacity ammunition magazines. Never one to shy away from controversy, he threw himself into the fight for marriage equality as mayor of San Francisco in 2004 by allowing more than 4,000 same-sex couples to marry in the city before the courts intervened. He also started a universal health care program in the city, set stringent environmental building standards and banned plastic bags and Styrofoam containers. The former television show host and business owner is also author of the book Citizenville: How to Take the Town Square Digital and Reinvent Government.

    As lieutenant governor, Newsom serves as a University of California Regent, a Trustee for the California State University System, and a member of the State Lands Commission. Lt. Gov. Newsom joined the Sacramento Press Club at our October 19 luncheon.

    Presidential Debate Watch Party

    The Sacramento Press Club held a Debate Watch Party on Wednesday, October 19, as candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump squared off once more to convince voters before casting their ballot in the November election. Our Presidential Debate Watch party brought together journalists, politicos and consultants in a neutral setting for cocktails, commentary and comradery. We hosted this party from 5:00pm – 9:00pm in the upstairs event space at BarWest and served complimentary appetizers. The many television screens surrounding the room ensured great viewing access and convenience. Tickets funds generated support the Sacramento Press Club’s annual journalism scholarship program. The Debate Watch Party was co-sponsored by Rough & Tumble and The Capitol Morning Report.

  • Vivekresize

    Vivek Ranadivé, Sacramento Kings owner & chairman

    Vivek Ranadivé is a technology entrepreneur who pioneered the use of real-time messaging software and created TIBCO, a multibillion dollar software company. His software helped digitize Wall Street and became the central nervous system for most of the world’s largest companies and government agencies. He is known as “Mr. Real Time” – his belief that by getting the right information to the right place at the right time, you can make the world a better place. He was inspired to leave his native India at 16 for Cambridge, Mass., where he earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering and later an MBA at Harvard.

    But you may know him better as the owner and chairman of the Sacramento Kings. His love of basketball began when he coached his daughter’s middle school team, a success that was the inspiration for Malcolm Gladwell’s bestselling book “David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants.” In 2013, he became the first Indian majority owner of an NBA team when he purchased the Sacramento Kings, securing their future in California’s capital city. Under Ranadivé’s leadership, the Kings are investing $1 billion in the downtown area and aiming to build “next great American city.”

    The Sacramento Press Club welcomed Ranadivé just days before the official opening of the new Golden 1 Center, which was billed as the world’s smartest arena, powered 100 percent by solar energy and hopefully the key to a winning future on the court, too.

  • Tamara Keith

    Tamara Keith- NPR White House Correspondent

    **Please note: This luncheon will be held at 1231 I Street**
    Tamara Keith joined the Sacramento Press Club as our luncheon speaker on Monday, August 29th. Tamara is a NPR White House Correspondent when she’s not on the campaign trail covering Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. A native Californian, she is also a former Sacramento Press Club member who covered the statehouse for NPR member stations KPCC and KQED.

    Before moving to White House coverage focused on the economy and the federal budget, Keith covered Congress, and the candidates Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, and Mitt Romney during the Republican primaries of 2012.

    Keith joined NPR as a business reporter in 2009, covered the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake in 2010, and conceived and reported the 2011 NPR series The Road Back To Work, a year-long series featuring the audio diaries of six people in St. Louis who began the year unemployed and searching for work.

    Keith got her start in news by writing and voicing essays for NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday as a teenager. While in college, she launched her career at KQED’s California Report, covering topics including agriculture and the environment. She opened the state capital bureau for KPCC/Southern California Public Radio, and in 2006 returned to KQED, serving as the Sacramento-region reporter for two years.

    Keith has received an award for best news writing from the APTRA California/Nevada and a first place trophy from the Society of Environmental Journalists for “Outstanding Story Radio.” Keith was a 2010-2011 National Press Foundation Paul Miller Washington Reporting Fellow.

    Keith earned a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from University of California, Berkeley, and a master’s degree at the UCB Graduate School of Journalism. She is also a member of the Bad News Babes, a media softball team that once a year competes against female members of Congress in the Congressional Women’s Softball game.
