San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom isn’t new to controversy, and the decision to publicly endorse a constitutional convention is just that. It’s a big move, but speaks to the underlying need for change in Sacramento. Whether it’s the right move for California is still open to interpretation.
On Wednesday at 5 PM, Calitics will be co-hosting an online town hall with Mayor Newsom. I’ll be moderating, asking questions, and generally requiring lots of answers about his vision for the state of California, what sort of change he’ll bring, and how he’ll work with the existing structure to bring about needed reform.
So, I’m looking for questions. What do you want to know from Mayor Newsom? Want to know whether he thinks water issues should be in the constitutional convention? Or Prop 13? Or social issues? How would he work with Republican legislators to approach reform?
We’ll have the Ustream available on Calitics Wednesday at 5 PM; you can also catch it at Ustream.com/GavinLive. Full details and RSVP information over the flip.
P.S. If any other statewide candidates are reading this, and would like to do an audio or video live stream with myself or another Calitics editor, let me know. I’m very interested in bringing the candidates to the progressive netroots.
You can participate from your own computer on facebook or http://Ustream.com/GavinLive and ask questions.
