SACRAMENTO Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) issued the following statement today regarding the White House state dinner for Mexico, which featured guests of honor President Felipe Calderón and First Lady Margarita Zavala of Mexico:

“I was honored to be invited by President Obama to attend the State Dinner celebrating President Calderon of Mexico. California is the world’s eighth largest economy, and that is in no small part due to our long history of trade and cooperation with our Mexican neighbors. As Speaker of the California Assembly, it is my duty to help strengthen those ties of cooperation and history to ensure continued growth and prosperity for both the people of California and the people of Mexico.”
