Michael Shellenberger is a public policy leader and investigative reporter. His recent book, San Fransicko, brought national attention to the humanitarian crisis in California’s cities, where homelessness, crime, addiction and mental illness are on the rise.

Michael has a plan for California, to push aside the partisan politicians who have allowed these problems to fester, and rebuild our communities with tough love, mandatory drug treatment, and a new statewide mental health system. He’ll end the open air drug markets in our cities, and restore safety and sanity to our state.
