The folks who brought you a zippy post-mortem conference on the 2010 election have teamed up once again, this time to shed light on Gov. Jerry Brown’s controversial proposal to do away with redevelopment agencies. Capitol Weekly newspaper and UC Center Sacramento will co-sponsor the event on Thursday, March 24, at the Crest Theater in Sacramento.

The half-day conference, scheduled from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, will include two panels of four experts each, plus a keynote luncheon speaker. The first panel, “Follow the Money,” will focus on the people and interests that stand to gain and lose financially if Brown’s proposal succeeds. The second panel, “Follow the Politics,” centers on political battles raging around the governor’s effort.

Panel moderators will be Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and John Myers, Capitol bureau chief for KQED Radio. Among confirmed participants are Senate Pres. pro Tem Darrell Steinberg; Chris McKenzie, executive director of the California League of Cities; Mayor Ron Loveridge of Riverside, who also serves as president of the National League of Cities; and political consultant Mike Madrid. Check back to this site for the names of additional panelists as they confirm their participation.

A ringside seat costs $99 and includes continental breakfast and lunch.
