      UC Berkeley Selects California State Senator Tom Torlakson as the Second
      Victor Jones Memorial Lecturer on Metropolitan Governance

      UC Berkeley's Institute of Governmental Studies (IGS) and the Political
      Science Department have selected California State Senator Tom Torlakson as
      its Second Victor Jones Memorial Lecturer on Metropolitan Governance. This
      occasional lecture series takes place on Friday, February 6, 2004,
      1:30-2:30 pm, at UC Berkeley Alumni House Toll Room. A reception will
      follow the lecture at 2:30-3:00 pm. This lecture, entitled Regionalism:
      Thinking for A New Century, is free and open to the public.

      State Senator Torlakson (D-Antioch) is the California Legislature's
      voice for seeking innovative solutions to regional problems. The Senator
      chairs the Senate Local Government Committee and its Select Committee on
      Bay Area Infrastructure that has conducted a series of hearings to
      investigate the infrastructure needs of the Greater San Francisco Bay
      Region. His Select Committee has also discussed how existing regional
      government structures and jurisdictions might be changed to meet these
      challenges on a regional level. These discussions have included the
      potential merger of the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and the
      Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC).

      Senator Torlakson will discuss his efforts to seek consolidation of Bay
      Area regional agencies and new policy initiatives that include:

      Ø Benefits of regional leadership and collaborative-decision making

      Ø Models of success: the Inter-Regional Partnership of Alameda,
      Costa, Santa Clara, San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties

      Ø Building a better California: jobs-housing balance and the
      transportation- land use connection

      Ø Moving forward at the local, regional and state level to build a
      better California

      Senator Torlakson, a graduate of UC Berkeley, has served as an elected
      official on the Antioch City Council, the Contra Costa Board of
      Supervisors, and the California State Assembly before serving in the
      California State Senate.

      This lecture will be made available on the campus webcast. To lean more
