LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair and California Democratic Party Vice Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following response on Governor Jerry Brown’s State of the State Address:
“Last night, Governor Jerry Brown ordered a prescription to rescue California from our chronic fiscal crisis and put our state back on its feet. If we want to rebuild our economy, create new jobs, protect the most vulnerable, and restore California’s fiscal health, we must work together with Governor Brown to put California first through these dire times.
“Governor Brown’s pragmatic proposals may be hard to swallow and the choices we face may be difficult, but we must work together to stop band-aiding our budget woes and begin treating it from its roots. Together, we will restore California into the Golden State once again.”
