California Citizen


California Citizen is an attempt to educate our fellow state residents about public policy and issues that affect them. Public policy is complex, and we want to make it easier for people to understand the issues and the process. We believe that when voters are better informed they’ll make better decisions regardless of their political persuasion.

Our mission is to simplify that complexity and hopefully make it easier to swallow.

California Citizen is currently just two people: Marc Phu and Randa Cardwell. Our inspiration comes from the time we both worked on California Connected, our Saturday mornings watching Schoolhouse Rock, our identification with the Egyptian Panda, and our love of the Sunshine State.
