The 2019 Maddy Institute “Big 5” Sacramento Reception

Benefiting Future Valley Leaders from Fresno State

On May 6th, 2019 The Maddy Institute, Governor Gavin Newsom, the California Legislative Leadership will participate in our annual private event at the California Museum in Sacramento, CA. Willie Brown former Speaker of the Assembly and Mayor of San Francisco will, once again, be the Master of Ceremonies.

This annual event raises funds for The Maddy Institute and its Bob Beverly Sacramento Legislative Intern Scholarship Program, which provides students the opportunity to work with legislators of both parties at the State Capitol. Almost half of all Maddy Alumni are Fresno State students and graduates.  Indeed, Sen. Maddy, himself, was a proud Fresno State alum!

Providing Legislative Internships at the State Capitol for Fresno State students was a key priority for the late Sen. Maddy:

“One of the things we want to do is get young people involved in politics. The Institute should teach students about the complexity of a democracy at work and the passionate issues that motivate constituents and their elected representatives.”
