Yours truly will be speaking at a "Public Sector Forum" today (Thursday, April 21), 5 PM, 1447 Law School, on California's "Governance, Budgets, and Public Workers." The program has a panel on the subject and was organized by Prof. Katherine Stone of the Law School.
Note that Obama is visiting the Westside today so if you are not on campus, you may not be able to get there due to traffic gridlock. On the other hand, you might not be able to get home if you are on campus so the forum is something to do while you are stuck.
And wait, there is more!
After the Forum, former Chancellor Charles Young will be speaking at 6:30 PM on "The State of California and its University" at the Faculty Center as part of the Bollens-Ries-Hoffenberg lecture program. Although I don't know for sure what he will say, I suspect you can find the general thrust in his chapter (chapter 5) in California Policy Options 2011, available at http://issuu.com/uclapubaffairs/docs/cpo2011.
