The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.
We are living in extraordinary times. The challenges before us are monumental and the stakes have never been higher in my lifetime.
The people of this great state reject the Trump Administration’s politics of division and we refuse to be dragged into the past – we’ve proved this time and time again at the polls and through our policies.
That’s why we’re making an unprecedented investment in our kids and our future.
California’s 2017-18 Budget prioritizes public education like never before, raising per pupil spending to just over $11,000.
For the sixth straight year, California Democrats have delivered the highest level of funding for our communities and schools that need it most. All told, we added a historic $74.5 BILLION to our K-14 education programs while empowering local officials to spend it as they see fit.
Our budget is a reflection of our values and our priorities – and when it comes to our children, I wanted you to know I’m working for them. This budget puts kids first. Thank you for helping us deliver a historic win and a brighter future for the next generation of Californians.
