By Assemblyman Rich Gordon

SACRAMENTO – In this Weekly Democratic Address, Assemblyman Rich Gordon (D-Menlo Park) highlights the importance of a balanced budget approach in continuing California’s economic recovery. Gordon stresses the need to move forward with extended revenues to promote job creation, and maintain public safety and education as priorities. Gordon touches on a recent Assembly Democrat jobs budget summit held in the Silicon Valley, noting that “job creation and the budget are closely linked issues, because we cannot close the book on this recession until Californians have quality, decent jobs.” Gordon also discusses the importance of education to California’s recovery, emphasizing the need “to protect K-12 and higher education as key components of a well-educated, competitive workforce.”
