What is quintessentially Californian? We want to hear YOUR ideas.
Stag Hunters Marcus Ruiz Evans, author of California's Next Century 2.0, and Patrick Atwater, author of A New California Dream, are pioneering a new project. See below for a clip of our intrepid authors on Central Valley Buzz (starts at 36:30):
California has embodied the new frontier since the Gold Rush. Our inaugural magazine gets in that pioneering spirit by exploring how we might build a government in California that reflects the globalized and technologically connected world we live in. These essays dig deep into the root causes of our suboptimal government and offers a new direction for revolutionizing California’s bureaucracy. In addition, this volume offer pragmatic insights into how we might re-imagine education on a more human foundation.
