Assemblymember Rich Gordon,  Assembly Democratic Radio Address, May 13, 2011:

“At a recent jobs budget summit held in my district, I joined Speaker John Pérez, other Assemblymembers and Silicon Valley tech leaders to discuss the importance of protecting jobs while responsibly closing the budget deficit.

“It became clear throughout our discussions 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.

“The business leaders we spoke with stressed the importance of educating California’s workforce, stressing the need to protect k-12 and higher education as key components of a well-educated, competitive workforce—one that is critical to California’s return to long term economic prosperity.”
