11 October: Talkin' Mid-Term Election


Our October luncheon will feature an all-star lineup talking about the hottest topics in a November election that promises to be one of the most significant in recent years.

Will a so-called Blue Wave return Democrats to control of the House of Representatives? Will Californians vote to do away with a gasoline tax that is paying for a huge expansion of road repairs? And will the expansion of rent control and changes in Prop. 13 pass muster with the voters?

These questions and a whole lot more will be answered by a panel that includes Dan Morain, former editorial director of the Sacramento Bee and now with CalMatters; Amy Chance, current chief of the Bee’s Capitol Bureau; and Dr. Barbara O’Connor, CSUS emeritus professor of communications studies and former director of the university’s Institute for the Study of Poliics and Media. The discussion, in a Q&A format, will be moderated by longtime political reporter and author Steve Swatt. There’ll be plenty of opportunity for questions from the audience.

The panelists also will talk about Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s bid for another six-year term and the Democrats’ chances of turning the Senate, too; the impact of the #metoo movement on the legislative races; and the prospects for the city of Sacramento’s Measure U sales tax extension.
