You will recall that Close the Gap California’s Executive Director, Susannah Delano, was part of the panel for PDB’s Women Forum on March 8 organized by our Women’s Caucus. The quarterly report mentions Benicia, and pictures Susannah along with State Controller Betty Yee at the event with others during the evening.

We are impressed that they will have Ann Ravel as main speaker for the first webinar on March 8, “Dark Money. Clean Money. Can an Ethical Candidate Compete?” Ann Ravel is the former director of the Federal Elections Commission.
