McGeorge students presented this fall's edition of the California Initiative Review on Oct. 14, 2014, at the California Initiative Forum on the McGeorge campus. The November 2014 issue of the California Initiative Review is available online. A video of the forum is also online.
McGeorge students produce and publish a high-quality non-partisan edition of the California Initiative Review for every general statewide election, as a resource for all California voters. The authors are all students who have been enrolled in Professor Mary-Beth Moylan's California Initiative Seminar.
Students made presentations based on their reports at the beginning of the California Initiative Forum, followed by questions from the audience. Third District Court of Appeal justices Andrea Lynn Hoch and Elena J. Duarte, both up for a yes-or-no vote on retention on the Nov. 4 ballot, were among the audience members.
Leading up to the forum were related events. On Oct. 13, Professor Mary-Beth Moylan discussed the ballot propositions on CapRadio's Insight program with Beth Ruyak. On Oct. 1, McGeorge hosted "Drugs and Damages: A Debate about California's Proposition 46." In addition, several of the students participated in a preview of the California Initiative Forum on Oct. 11, to a large community gathering at the Sylvan Oaks Public Library in a forum sponsored by the AAUW Citrus Heights-American River Branch.
Easton Broome and Fay Saechao also gave a presentation about Proposition 46 at the Women Democrats of Sacramento's monthly meeting on Oct. 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the Sacramento City Teachers Association (5300 Elvas Ave., Sacramento, CA 95819).
