Sacto Rolodex update

We posted a note when Dave Lesher opened a California office for the New America Foundation, so it's only right to observe that he's leaving. Lesher, the former editor of California Journal, is opening a Sacramento arm of the Public Policy Institute of California. From his email to the New America fellows:

The background is that I have known Mark Baldassare for more than 20 years and we've worked together on a number of projects over the years, most recently co-authoring several op-eds on the independent voting trend. Mark was named president of PPIC recently and he asked me to open this new office. It was a very difficult decision because I've truly enjoyed my work at New America. I'm immensely proud of the institution that we've built from scratch in California and the remarkable influence and attention we've received.
