Sacramento Beeand#8217;s political columnist to analyze state election

The California primary election and its potential to impact life in state is the topic of Sacramento Bee political columnist Dan Walters’ upcoming appearance presented by Squaw Valley Institute.

The event takes place at PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn in Squaw Valley at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 10. A no-host bar reception begins at 6:30 p.m.

While California’s budget crisis continues, Gov. Jerry Brown, civil rights attorney Molly Munger and the California Taxpayers Association have weighed in on how to solve the crisis. Which option are voters most likely to back? Other issues such as the proposed high-speed bullet train and the continuing high unemployment rates face voters this year.

Can political solutions impact unemployment? Come hear Walters speak about these issues and more.
