New News is Good News

By Melissa Daar

Wednesday night we received some good news in the most recent poll from the Public Policy Institute of California. It looks like more and more Californians are starting to understand that we can’t just expect to solve our problems with drastic cuts to the state budget. As of January 2011, the majority of Californians (and a majority of frequent voters) support Governor Brown’s budget proposal.

As a network, we may not love every aspect of his proposal, but it turns out that it could be a great tailwind for our discussions with elected officials and the people of California on the impact and essential importance of our programs.
