Twin Town Halls On Reform

How can we fix state government now? Against the backdrop of two distinctly different statewide efforts to reform California’s constitution, Assemblymember Beall is holding two Town Halls to continue the public debate and explore possible solutions.

Both Town Halls are scheduled for Thursday, April 8.

TOWN HALL FORUMS

Here’s a quick update on the twin town halls I held earlier this month:

More than 120 people attended the town halls at San Jose State University and at the Willow Glen Community and Senior Center.

Joining me was Thad Kousser, a University of California-San Diego political science professor who is researching and analyzing constitutional reform as a visiting fellow at the Hoover Institute, and the Bill Lane Center for the American West, both located at Stanford University.

JOBS

Since August, I’ve been out in the community listening to people talk about the issues and events affecting their lives. Time after time, they are telling me this recession is hitting them hard.

They are losing their jobs, their health coverage, and their homes. Their children’s dreams of attending college are vanishing.

These folks have played by the rules all their lives only to find out there was a different set of rules for us and Wall Street. To be sure, they have a right to be angry.
