The Politics of Trust

HISTORY AND MISSION OF THE VASCONCELLOS LEGACY PROJECT

In 2001, recognizing that he would be departing the Legislature in November, 2004 (by reason of term limits), after 38 years representing the heart of the Silicon Valley, Senator Vasconcellos convened his brain trust to seek a way to sustain the practices and pragmatic outcomes of his collaborative, bipartisan policymaking. "As concerned Californians with a history of successful engagement within the Legislature, we recognized several downsides of term limits, including the loss of institutional memory, reduced focus on long range planning, and far less time for mentoring and the development of the experience necessary for effective reform."
