Great to moderate a panel of journalists at the AAPC California Conference at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in LA. The Roosevelt is a sentimental favorite – it was the hotel for the Barbara Boxer crew on primary night in 1992, when she scored an upset victory against two better-known and better-funded opponents.

While I stepped down as AAPC President in 2021 and left the Board this year (no more zooms about budgets and bylaws!), I’m still a member of the AAPC Foundation board, raising funds for internships and legal defense funds.

Pictured above are Mark Barabak of the LA Times and Christine Mai-Duc of the Wall Street Journal. Not pictured, but another great participant on my panel, was Jeff Horseman of the Riverside Press-Enterprise.
