Dominican welcomes Newsom to Leadership Lecture Series

California Lieutenant Governor and former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom spoke at Dominican University of California's Angelico Hall on March 6 as part of the University’s 2013 Institute for Leadership Studies (ILS) Spring Leadership Lecture Series. The series is offered in partnership with Bay Area independent bookstore Book Passage.

Newsom appeared in conversation with Book Passage President Elaine Petrocelli and discussed his new book Citizenville: How to Take the Town Square Digital and Reinvent Government. The book examines how ordinary citizens can use new digital tools to dissolve political gridlock and transform American democracy. Citizenville suggests that the only way Americans can secure their future is by reinventing their relationship to government, just as they have countless times before.

The Leadership Lecture Series is a cooperative effort between Dominican’s Institute for Leadership Studies and Book Passage. Each year, the Leadership Lecture Series features some of the country's leading figures from the world of business, politics, entertainment, academia, and literature. All lectures are open to the public.

The ILS Spring 2013 Leadership Lecture Series is sponsored by Private Ocean, the Marin-based wealth management company.
