The Lamorinda Democratic Club is teaming up with Assemblymember Nancy Skinner and the Contra Costa Childcare Council, Youth Homes, City of Lafayette, City of Pleasant Hill, Contra Costa Community College District, City of Orinda, Town of Moraga, and Shasta-Pacific Planned Parenthood this month to host an important forum about the state budget crisis. 

On our normal meeting night, Thursday, February 10, the Lamorinda Democratic Club will join Asm. Skinner for an interactive state budget exercise at 7 p.m. at Acalanes high School in Lafayette. 

Governor Brown has released his proposal for California’s budget, outlining how much will be spent on schools, health services, public safety, other state programs. How would you vote on his proposed budget?

Come take Next10's California State Budget Challenge with Asm. Skinner and other members of our community. Next10's hands-on activity lets you decide how to balance the state budget by voting on policy options that affect the budget in real-time with instant response clickers. 

This interactive presentation allows you to choose how much to spend on schools, health services, prisons, the environment, and other state programs–and how to pay for them.

Give Assemblymember Skinner the budget feedback that she needs to take back to Sacramento.

What: California Budget Challenge with Next 10
Where: Lafayette, Acalanes High School, 1200 Pleasant Hill Road
When: Thursday, February 10, 2011, 7:00-8:30 pm
