Californians are looking for a government as innovative and creative as the state they call            home. We all want something to believe in, something that will bring about change without more gimmicks and old, tired ideas. Overhauling the constitution only makes sense if it empowers communities at the expense of a bloated Sacramento. Put simply: To succeed, government must be closer to the people, focused on solving problems, and organized to achieve better results.
