96. Mark Baldassare
Anyone who writes about politics and public policy in California has an ally and resource in Marc Baldassare’s Public Policy Institute of California.  Calm, authoritative, far-ranging, impartial and always accurate, the PPIC is invaluable — and that’s understating the case.  Baldassare, president of the Institute, maintains a high level of interest in California politics and is a frequent and sage commentator on our ongoing saga.  With headquarters in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District and an office in Sacramento’s Senator Office building, the PPIC takes in-depth looks at everything from water to education to periodic statewide surveys on how Californians feel about their state and how it’s governed.
