SACRAMENTO, Calif., Nov. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sacramento Bee will mark the culmination of its 2018 California Influencer Series by hosting the California Priorities Summit on Friday, November 9, 2018 at the Sofia Tsakopoulos Center for the Arts from 8am - 12:30pm. The event will convene leaders, decision makers and voters for an inclusive, civil, dynamic gathering that challenges political assumptions and creates a shared vision for California.
The California Priorities Summit is a continuation of conversations sparked by The Sacramento Bee Influencer Series -- an unparalleled project that put a sharp focus on policy issues most pressing for voters, and offered insight and perspective on those issues from influential leaders from across the state of California.
"We're proud to have ignited meaningful discussions about issues that were front-and-center on voters' minds in the midterm election," said Lauren Gustus, editor of The Sacramento Bee and regional editor of McClatchy's West region. "Our Influencer Series and this summit represent The Bee's commitment to finding innovative ways to engage our readers and leading voices in the state, and to catalyze meaningful conversations that are focused on building a better California."
The California Priorities Summit will be composed of live interviews, panel discussions, live/social media Q & A and participant-generated recommendations. This event will be livestreamed on SacBee.com.
Participants will tackle a number of policy areas at the California Priorities Summit:
- Living in California -- Where we can afford to live and how we'll get there (a discussion about housing and transportation)
- Pushing the Ball Forward on the Big Issues: Education | Jobs/Economy | Environment/Energy
- Gearing up for Governor -- Former Governor Gray Davis weighs in on what's next for California's new governor
