Assemblyman Cooley Highlights Governor Brown’s Fiscal Responsibility

Assemblyman Cooley Highlights Governor Brown’s Fiscal Responsibility

On Wednesday, January 22, following Governor Jerry Brown’s 2014 State of the State Address, Assemblyman Ken Cooley (D-Rancho Cordova) commended Governor Brown’s fiscal responsibility in using our State’s budget surplus to pay down debt and allocate significant portions toward the Rainy Day Fund.

“I am very happy in the fiscal responsibility Governor Brown has shown in using our budget surplus to relieve our State’s debt while focusing funding towards build up programs that will do a better job to uplift our local communities and neighborhoods.”

“During my service as a councilmember and Mayor for the City of Rancho Cordova, my colleagues and I faced many financial constraints. During those times, we kept our focus on programs that made fiscal sense and made our city a great place to live. We kept our City’s debt low, focused on funding our most important projects first, and made the right choices for the long-term health of our community.”

Assembly Insurance Committee Holds Oversight Hearing in Wake of EDD System Failure

On Wednesday, Assemblyman Ken Cooley participated in the Assembly Insurance Committee oversight hearing on the disrupted deployment of the California Employment Development Department’s new unemployment insurance system and delays to benefit disbursement. During the hearing, the Committee listened to EDD clients who have not received unemployment insurance benefits since the deployment of the new system in early September.

“This has been a calamity for the 148,000 people who are at a dire time in their lives and need this help,” said Assemblyman Ken Cooley. “To have this happen is a colossal problem. We need to find out what went wrong and what we can learn from it.”

Assembly Select Committee Pursues Revitalizing Established Communities

SACRAMENTO – Wednesday, August 28, Assemblyman Ken Cooley chaired the first hearing of the Assembly Select Committee on Community and Neighborhood Development. The ten member, bi-partisan committee heard from policy and administrative experts who spoke about the impacts of suburban sprawl on our metropolitan areas, and funding needs to help revitalize our aging communities.

“As metropolitan areas grow, it’s important that we do not forget about the needs of our older communities, and help keep them desirable places to live that can attract jobs and private sector investment,” said Cooley. “We moved to our neighborhood because we liked what was there. Now, some of our older areas are faced with quality of life challenges that stand as barriers to community revitalization.”
