This program was rescheduled from May 15

Draper has submitted an initiative to the state’s attorney general in the form of a ballot proposition proposal called Six Californias, which he hopes to get on the November ballot. The proposal calls for the creation of new states, such as Silicon Valley and West California, which would be anchored by the cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles. Orange County and San Diego would be part of the new state of South California. To the north, remaining counties would be divided into regions called Central California, North California and Jefferson.

Draper believes that the Golden State has been rendered nearly ungovernable by social and economic changes. The initiative has to qualify by July 18, 2014, to make it on next November’s ballot. Come ask your questions about this controversial idea. As an advocate for entrepreneurs and free markets, Draper is regularly featured as a keynote speaker in entrepreneurial conferences throughout the world, and he has been recognized as a leader in his field with numerous awards and honors.
