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.”

I really wanted to be business as usual today: whine about the trials of parenting, share a funny anecdote, throw together a tips list, and in the process do some light Kardashian bashing.

340 Attend Job Fair Hosted by Assemblyman Ken Cooley, Local Employers

SACRAMENTO - More than 340 area residents attended a job fair hosted by Assemblyman Ken Cooley last Friday.

Joined with companies like Aerojet Rocketdyne, Kaiser Permanente, PG&E, Thunder Valley Casino and Vision Service Plan, attendees were able to hear about hundreds of  job opportunities available across the region and in various industries.

“Our area is still struggling with high unemployment but many opportunities are available,” said Assemblyman Ken Cooley. “My goal for this job fair was to bring those who are hiring and put them in front of those who are unemployed. Really, just bridging a gap between the two.”

Christina Perez, a representative with the California Department of Human Resources, kicked off the event with a presentation on how job seekers can take exams and apply for jobs with the State.

“The first step job seekers need to take is to search and apply for State exams,” said Perez.

The Sacramento area was home to several Native American tribes, and while the California State Indian Museum is located next to Sutter's Fort in Midtown Sacramento, nearby Roseville is home to Maidu Regional Park, where Native Americans livred, and visitors can see the evidence of their way of life both in the museum and on the park grounds.
