Thursday March 16, Listen to a former elected official, a journalist, and a failed candidate discuss their experiences with the American election process, with an emphasis on local issues, including what possessed them to get involved at all. Shane Brinton is a Sacramento-based labor organizer and activist who has worked for multiple unions representing healthcare workers. He has previously served as City Council Member and Mayor of Arcata, CA where he was born and raised. He has been involved in grassroots community organizing and electoral politics for more than a decade. Dan Gougherty is a journalist who has written the Elk Grove News blog, touted as the city's independent, non-corporate voice, since 2008. His focus is on local politics and economic development. Michael Monasky is the secretary of The Marxist School of Sacramento, and ran for Elk Grove mayor in 2016. He garnered 171 votes. The panel's first hour of presentation will be followed by an hour-long Q&A session. All of our events are free and open to the public. Hope to see you there!
