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.

Park District gives new life to closed school

Park District gives new life to closed school

Folsom Cordova Unified School District recently faced the closure of two of their Elementary schools in Rancho Cordova.  Rather than let the facility sit idle, Cordova Recreation and Park District approached the school district about allowing the use of the space for community events and classes.  In a unique and cooperative arrangement, these two public agencies have entered into a long term lease allowing the Park District use of the facility as a new community center, while retaining ownership of the land and facility by the school district for future use as a school.  A low cost, 25 year lease has been negotiated, allowing both agencies to walk away with a win; the Folsom Cordova Unified School District will not have an empty building to attract vandalism and theft, and Cordova Recreation and Park District gains some much needed space
