Event contact: Jasmine Flores, jjflores [at] berkeley.edu
On Tuesday, September 14, California voters will decide whether to recall Governor Gavin Newsom, and who, if anyone, should replace him. Moderated by Democratic strategist Katie Merrill, this panel discussion will feature LA Times political reporter Seema Mehta, USC Distinguished Professor of Sociology Manuel Pastor, and IGS Poll Director Mark Di Camillo, along with results from an IGS Poll that surveyed over 8,000 California voters in the final weeks leading up to the election. What are the forces behind the recall effort? How worried should Governor Newsom be? And what does all of this mean for the future of California?
