The Road to 2018: California State and Local Government

For over fifteen years, Mike Madrid has changed the outcomes of political campaigns throughout the country.  Named one of America’s “Most Influential Hispanics” by Hispanic Business Magazine, he is a regular commentator on Latino political issues in statewide and national media publications.  He has played a key role in pioneering Latino outreach and communications strategies in his positions as Press Secretary to the California Assembly Republican Leader and as Political Director of the California Republican Party. 

            As Public Affairs Director for the League of California Cities, Madrid was instrumental in the passage of Proposition 1A, The Local Taxpayer Protection Act, an historic achievement that constitutionally protected local government revenues from state raids.  He was also a key adviser in the defeat of Proposition 90 (The Taxpayer Trap), No on Prop. 98, Yes on Prop 99., and Yes on Prop. 22.

            He is a principal with Grassroots Lab and is the editor/publisher of California City News.  Grassroots Lab is a California based public affairs firm with specialties in state and local government, technology and innovation.  California City News is a news site dedicated to “the best politics, policy and practices of local government in California.”
