The conference on Friday, held at the Riverside Convention Center, drew political and business leaders and others from throughout the state.

A representative from Gov. Gavin Newsom suggested that the basic idea — to help inland parts of the state improve economically and culturally — is supported in Sacramento.

“The administration has been very clear that we currently have two Californias (coastal and Inland),” said Lande Ajose, Newsom’s senior policy advisor on higher education.

Newsom’s priority, Ajose added, is to bridge that gap.
