  • “Fake News” Panel/Holiday Mixer- Dec. 4

    Setting aside the tweets of a certain chief executive, there is a serious problem in the public discourse surrounding disingenuous news reports.

    Join the Sacramento Press Club for a discussion about the decline of the country’s major dailies as the traditional arbiter of valid news, the risks facing the American system of democracy and what the future might look like.

    Dan Morain, editorial page editor and political columnist for The Sacramento Bee.

  • Discussion with Jim Brulte, Eric C. Bauman and Marisa Lagos

    With the 2018 election season heating up, the Sacramento Press Club welcomed the chairs of the California Democratic and Republican parties. KQED reporter Marisa Lagos moderated a discussion with CRP Chair Jim Brulte and CDP Chair Eric Bauman about the candidates they’re fielding, the challengers they’re facing, the campaigns they’re preparing, and the future of both parties in the deep-blue state of California.

    Jim Brulte served 14 years in the Senate and Assembly, including time as Senate Republican Leader, before taking the helm as California Republican Party Chairman in March 2013. He has a national reputation as a dynamic leader and, prior to the election of Governor Schwarzenegger, was described as “arguably the most powerful elected Republican in California.”

    He was recently named one of the 100 most powerful people in Southern California by The Los Angeles Times and one of the top 50 most powerful political players in California by Capitol Weekly, which wrote “If anyone can engineer a Republican renaissance, it will be Brulte.” It’s a tall order, with the number of registered Republicans barely ahead of those who choose no party preference.

    Eric C. Bauman was elected chair of the California Democratic Party in May 2017, after serving as vice chair for eight years and serving seven terms as chair of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party. Under Bauman’s leadership, the LA County Democratic Party has received 18 Pollie Awards from the American Association of Political Consultants in categories as diverse as Social Media, Vote-by-Mail, Video, Direct Mail and Automated Calls. This year he is number 8 on Capitol Weekly’s Top 100.

    Bauman began his career as a registered nurse with graduate education in Health Care Administration. He spent many years in intensive care and trauma nursing before moving into hospital administration and founding a health care management consulting firm.

    Marisa Lagos reports on state politics for KQED’s California Politics and Government Desk, which uses radio, television and online mediums to explore the latest news in California’s Capitol and dig deeper into political influence in the Golden State. Marisa also appears on a weekly podcast analyzing the week’s political news.

    Before joining KQED, Marisa worked at the San Francisco Examiner and Los Angeles Times, and, most recently, for nine years at the San Francisco Chronicle where she covered San Francisco City Hall and state politics, focusing on the California legislature, governor, budget and criminal justice. Marisa has a bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Santa Barbara.

  • Conversation with LA Mayor Eric Garcetti and The Sacramento Bee’s Amy Chance

    On October 10th, the Sacramento Press Club held a conversation with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Sacramento Bee Political Editor Amy Chance.

    Eric Garcetti won his second term as the 42nd mayor of Los Angeles in March 2017. He just landed the 2028 Olympics for Los Angeles, with plans to use the Olympics to boost the city’s economy and infrastructure. He’s focused on protecting the city’s sanctuary status in opposition to the Trump Administration’s efforts to withhold funds, and is working to speed housing construction and address homelessness. Garcetti also has garnered attention for his record-setting, behested payments from individuals and businesses to a charity he created. And what about that trip to New Hampshire in August to support a mayoral candidate in Manchester?

    Garcetti served as a member and president of the Los Angeles City Council from 2001 to 2012 before he was first elected mayor. He was raised in the San Fernando Valley and earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Columbia University. He is also a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy Reserve.

    Amy Chance, political editor for The Sacramento Bee, has covered California politics and government for more than 25 years. She supervises a staff of reporters and editors who cover the state Legislature, the Brown Administration, ballot measures and state political campaigns. Chance joined The Bee as its City Hall reporter in 1984, moving two years later to the Capitol Bureau to cover the second term of Gov. George Deukmejian. Since then, she has reported on most of the state’s major political figures, from U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein to former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. She currently oversees Capitol coverage across multiple platforms, including the popular Capitol Alert blog.
