The Bay Area Council, in partnership with the Courage Campaign, Common Cause, the League of Women Voters, and the New America Foundation, has called for a “summit” to consider the possibilities of calling a new Constitutional Convention for California.
The California Constitutional Convention Summit will take place Tues., Feb. 24, 2009 , 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Sacramento.
From the website:
We believe California’s system of government is fundamentally broken. Our prisons overflow, our water system teeters on collapse, our once proud schools are criminally poor, our financing system is bankrupt, our democracy produces ideologically-extreme legislators that can pass neither budget nor reforms, and we have no recourse in the system to right these wrongs.
Drastic times call for drastic measures.
