Dear League Members,

In June, the Supreme Court ruled that partisan gerrymandering is a political question because no fair test exists for courts to determine when partisan gerrymandering has gone too far. That means all federal courts will be hands-off even when redistricting intentionally decreases the voting power of voters based on their political party.

As our community begins to rebuild after the most devastating wildfire in California’s history, we face challenges around lack of housing, overcrowding, and creating sustainable, economic development. In order to tackle these challenges, we must ask ourselves:

  • What are the practical steps that communities need to take to rebuild, but are often overlooked as communities take swift action?
  • What can we learn from other communities who have experienced trauma and managed to rebuild?

If it’s important and has anything to do with Jerry Brown’s administration and major California public policy issues, Diana Dooley was in the middle of it. As chief of staff and executive secretary in the governor’s office, longtime Brown loyalist Dooley played a major role in shaping the administration’s actions on legislation, appointments, staff and pretty much everything else. She’s no stranger to high-level positions: She served as legislative secretary and special assistant to Brown during his first two terms in 1975-83 and moved into the chief of staff slot in March 2018.
