About Us

For over 20 years the California Political Review has been one of the most influential and respected publications for California political discourse. Founded by the late John Kurzweil, CPR has been one of the state’s leading outlets for thoughtful, innovative political news and commentary.

Our content is meant to be hard-hitting, solution-oriented and aims to hold legislators throughout the Golden State to higher standards and good governance principles to rebuild a vibrant economy, protect individual liberties and make California as business friendly as possible.

The California Political Review is a website advancing innovative thinking on CA public policy issues. Bill Saracino, who has been with CPR since its inception in 1990 is a contributing editor. Janice Lacy, a former Deputy Chief Counsel at the Republican National Committee and partner with Jim Lacy in Landslide Communications, serves on the editorial Board.  James V. Lacy, author of the book “Taxifornia,” first published by Post Hill Press in January, 2014, is the publisher of the California Political Review.

In 2014, we welcomed Stephen Frank as Senior Contributing Editor and are proud to incorporate Steve’s “California Political News and Views” as a special section of California Political Review.
