• LA Mayor Eric Garcetti- Non-Members

     Registration is closed for this event

    Join the Sacramento Press Club Oct. 10 for 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.

  • Retired U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer conversation with the LA Times’ Melanie Mason- September 27th

    Retired U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer joined the Sacramento Press Club in a conversation with Los Angeles Times Reporter Melanie Mason at the Sept. 27, 2017 luncheon.

    Boxer retired from the U.S. Senate in January 2017 after serving 24 years in the upper house and 10 years in the House of Representatives. Before serving in Congress, Boxer spent six years on the Marin County Board of Supervisors.

    Throughout her service, Boxer has advocated for families, children, consumers and the environment. She chaired the Environment and Public Works Committee, served as a senior member of the Foreign Relations Committee, and served as the top Democrat on the Senate Ethics Committee.

    Boxer wrote landmark legislation establishing federal funding for afterschool programs. She also worked to fund anti-gang programs, pass the Violence Against Women Law (VAWA), and the Community Policy “COPS” Program. Her bill to prevent the criminal use of personal information obtained through motor vehicle records was signed into law and upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. In the Senate, she fought back against repeated attacks on women’s health and a woman’s right to privacy.

    Since retiring from the Senate, Senator Boxer has been volunteering for the political action committee she founded, PAC for a Change, raising awareness about the importance of voting in every election and helping candidates make life better for the people that they serve.

    An author of several books, Boxer’s message in her latest book, The Art of Tough, is the need for each of us to be unafraid to fight for positive change in our communities and in our nation.

    Melanie Mason covers state government and politics in Sacramento. She first began working for the Los Angeles Times in 2011 in Washington, D.C., where she covered money and politics during the 2012 presidential campaign. She is originally from Los Angeles and is a graduate of Georgetown University and the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.

  • Recreational Marijuana Panel- July 26

    On July 1, neighboring Nevada began its journey into legalized commercial sale of marijuana. California voters approved recreational use of marijuana last November on the same day as Nevada – but the regulatory framework for commercial sales is still a work in progress that is expected to extend beyond the end of the year.

    On Wednesday, July 26, the Sacramento Press Club is hosting a panel of experts to bring us up to date on the issues that have been settled and the ones that remain as sticking points to the smooth integration of recreational and medical marijuana usage in the largest state to legalize what the federal government still views as a dangerous narcotic.

    Profiles of Panelists and Moderator:

    Lori Ajax, Chief, Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation: In February 2016, Governor Brown appointed Ajax as the first chief of the newly formed Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation. Prior to her appointment, Ajax served as Chief Deputy Director at the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control where she spent 22 years working her way up the ranks, starting at the investigator trainee level.

    Hezekiah Allen, Executive Director, California Growers Association: Allen was born at home and raised off the grid in Humboldt County. Growing up on the frontline of the war on drugs instilled in him a deep-rooted passion for cannabis policy reform and social justice. As the Executive Director of the California Growers Association, he is now spearheading a community organizing effort to bring together cannabis growers and business owners throughout the state.

    Joseph M. Devlin, Chief of Cannabis Policy and Enforcement, City of Sacramento: Joe is a Sacramento native with over 17 years experience managing and developing public policy at the State and local level. Prior to being appointed to the position, Joe served as Chief of Staff for Councilmember Jay Schenirer for seven years, where he developed an in-depth knowledge of cannabis policy.
