Sen. John M.W. Moorlach today announced:
I would like to congratulate Gov. Gavin Newsom on his inauguration as California’s 40th governor, especially how he brought up the passage in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount about building a strong foundation for “our house.”
The new governor will release the specifics in his budget proposal on January 10. I am hoping the state’s “foundation” is used to take on the difficult fiscal condition of most of the state’s municipalities and school districts.
A proper foundation also will care for the least among us. As one who has worked to help the homeless and mentally ill since before my public service began 25 years ago, I was heartened by his words, “We will stop stigmatizing mental health and start supporting it.” I look forward to working with him on this and other critical issues.
