Confused by the May 19 election’s ballot propositions? Didn’t even know there was an election? Then think about attending tonight’s educational forum at the Center for Healthy Communities @ The California Endowment. On the panel is Jean Ross, executive director of the California Budget Project; Janis Hirohama, president, League of Women Voters of California; and Stuart Waldman, president, Valley Industry and Commerce Association. The program will begin with nonpartisan analysis of the ballot measures, followed a question-and-answer session with the audience. The evening will be moderated by KPCC reporter Frank Stoltze. This event is free, but RSVPs are recommended.

The New Media Vault is a monthly Downtown networking mixer. It’s being held at the Crocker Club tonight from 7:30 pm to midnight. The Vault is a chance to mingle and mix with others from the worlds of TV, film, new media, tech, advertising and venture finance. The event is free, but reservations are needed. And there is a strict dress code: “No flip flops, no baseball caps or beanies, no hoodies, no sports logos, no baggy attire, no athletic attire, no windbreakers, no white tennis shoes, basketball or running shoes, if you choose to wear dark sneakers, and/or t-shirts, we will require you to wear a collared jacket.” Hmm. So good luck with that and have fun!
