Do you believe in civility in our public discourse?
Do you want public policy decisions driven by facts, not emotions?
Do you want to encourage integrity in the next generation of Valley leaders?
If your answer to these questions are “yes,” we hope you will consider joining us in that effort by supporting the Maddy Institute–the Valley’s public policy institute.
Your contribution will support:
· Our legislative intern programs that allow Valley students to work in legislative offices in Washington, D.C., Sacramento and throughout the Valley, learning about the political process first hand. (We now have over 200 Valley students who are alums of Maddy Legislative Intern Programs.)
· Our media programs, such as our weekly half-hour public affairs tv programs in English (Maddy Report on ABC30) and Spanish (El Informe Maddy), as well as our weekly one-hour radio program (Valley Views on KMJ Newstalk 580/105.9) that engage in thoughtful discussions on important public policy issues. Even more, you will help inform other Californians of the Valley’s unique issues and perspectives because The Maddy Report is viewed statewide on The California Channel, the State’s C-SPAN equivalent, four times a week while the Legislature is in session (TTH, 8:30 am and pm) and 14 times a week when the Legislature is not in session (every day, 8:30 am and pm).
· Your tax-deductible contribution will also help support The Maddy Daily, our free e-newsletter on politics and public policy that is a daily “must read” for over 11,000 subscribers.
We rely on contributions from concerned citizens, like you, to make this happen. In sum, we are asking you to make an investment in a more civil, fact-based approach to the politics.
Help the Maddy Institute continue to encourage the pragmatic, bi-partisan problem solving that has been the hallmark of the Valley’s best political.
