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.”
