BREWS AND VIEWS Half Moon Bay Free public forum California Pensions: a $500 billion debt

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

On Thursday, January 20, the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company in Half Moon Bay hosts the second of its 2011 speakers’ series, Brews and Views, with two special guests discussing one of California’s hottest topics: the state’s vastly underfunded state and local pensions, at least one of which are now the subject of an Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigation. Moderator Lenny Mendonca, co-founder of the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, founder of Brews and Views, and Director at McKinsey & Company, will facilitate a lively and illuminating discussion with David Crane, former top advisor to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on jobs and economic growth and recent appointee to the University of California Board of Regents, and Joe Nation, former state assemblyman and current director of the Graduate Public Policy Practicum at Stanford University and lecturer with Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR).

Ten percent of proceeds from all dinner sales at Half Moon Bay Brewing Company that evening will be donated to Cabrillo Education Foundation.

Thursday, January 20, 2011 — 6 to 8 p.m.
