“We’ve come a long way from the darkest days of the recession, but we can’t forget the lessons learned. We need to continue to work towards sustainable economic growth by investing in education, jobs, and safety net repairs while maintaining a robust rainy day fund.”

“We’re really concerned about the increasing amount of debt that students are amassing after they’ve completed their degrees and certificates…I’m really pleased to have worked with the California Student Aid Commission to come to this event and share some of the free assistance programs that are available to transfer and vocational students. This is a wonderful opportunity to explore some viable options to lower your costs.”

“These outrageous criminal acts have no place in our society, and particularly not on a college campus where we teach tolerance, civility, and respect for diversity. I can assure President Qayoumi that the Legislature will work with Chancellor White to keep a close eye on his actions, so that every student knows that these unconscionable acts will not be tolerated anywhere…”

“I applaud Senator President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg for taking action to remove Senator Calderon from his chairmanship and other committee assignments. I hope he finds the will to join me in requesting for Senator Calderon's resignation as over the last week his constituents, activists and colleagues have shared that they have lost faith in his ability to govern with integrity.”

“The quality of life for our seniors is a high priority of mine. I am proud that the Congress of California Seniors has carefully looked at my voting record and given me a 100 percent score.  Many of our seniors are living on fixed incomes and it’s critical that they have access to health care, affordable housing and also have consumer protection laws to shield them from scam artists.”

“The delay in unemployment benefit payments that took place after Labor Day caused real harm to hundreds of thousands of California families who were missing out on their lifeline to pay for housing, food, medical care and other everyday expenses that don’t go away just because a paycheck is lost. The delay caused real anxiety and suffering among unemployed workers and their families. It’s unacceptable and it caused a real black eye for how Californians view their state government.”

“BART workers deserve to have life threatening safety violations corrected. Appeals have created a nasty loophole in California’s labor code allowing employers to kick the can down the road on hazardous workplace violations. I intend to continue the fight to fix this loophole and hope to work with the Governor to reach this goal.”
