The Davis–based government reform group, Saving California Communities ( SCC ), will host State Senator Loni Hancock (D-Oakland) as the featured speaker at its upcoming meeting on Wednesday, April 14th at 7:30 p.m. at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second Street. Admission is free, and all members of the public are welcome to attend.
Senator Hancock will be speaking on behalf of the upcoming Proposition 15, the California Fair Elections Act, which will appear on the statewide June ballot.

"California is the poster child of a broken campaign finance system because of the state's size and the high cost of campaigns" said Hancock. "Prop. 15 takes a small but real step in getting money out of politics, and that's why statewide organizations who speak for the common good like the League of Women Voters, Common Cause, AARP, the Consumer Federation, the Sierra Club all support Prop. 15.”
It establishes a voluntary pilot program of public financing for the office of California Secretary of State — the state official who oversees our elections and makes sure they are fair.
Hancock was the author of AB 583, the bill that put Proposition 15 on the ballot.

Following the discussion, members of SCC will give a recap of the group's recent activities as well as upcoming events.

A group of Davis community members have joined forces as Saving California Communities ( SCC ) to advocate for permanent structural budget reform at the state level.  This group brings together county, city and school elected representatives, educators, parents, students, city directors, health professionals, university and community college representatives, senior citizens, government employees and business owners.
