4:15- The Following Special Guests will speak to be followed by questions or a brief statement by members of the Caucus.

Betty Yee, State Controller, Our Economy, the impact of Consolidation of Companies on Small Business.  Can we preserve our Freedom to Start a new Business and Compete?  How does this contribute to Economic Equality when Sen. Sanders states that one-tenth of one-tenth of the wealthy in America control fifty per-cent of the wealth.

Tom Steyer, Progressive Advocate & Businessman, the impact of Money on our Electorate. If the elected must depend on funding to remain in office and they are beholden to the wealthy donors.  Will this cause the Electorate to feel that the vote does not matter? 

Eric Bauman, Candidate Chair-CDP, Vice Chair-CDP, Chair LACDP, Deputy to the Assembly Leader, the Continuing Role of the Political Party as a Representative of the People or Representative of the Wealthy.  Are our Political Parties forced to cater to the wealthy donors over the activists?  If so will this lead to a further concentration of wealth by favorable regulations and lower taxes for the wealthy?

What about the Judicial System and the cost?  If a Small Business Owner is not paid or is cheated by a wealthy person or corporation, how can one afford to obtain a judgement in court if discovery and the lengthy time to litigate is so costly?

Members will discuss these important matters as well as other issues that are of special concern to active members.

California Automatic Voter Registration a Reality

microphone-copyOn Saturday, October 10th, 2015 Governor Jerry Brown signed into law measures which will eventually make voter registration automatic for ALL California citizens who get or renew a California drivers license.

The bill was a priority of newly elected Secretary of State Alex Padilla, who championed its provisions during his election bid.

This makes California the second state to enact such measures much to the chagrin of republican and right wing conservative political punsters who want to restrict voter registration as much as possible. Republicans see widespread voter participation as a challenge to their desire to limit voting to white, property owning males.
