Berman Responds to Governor Newsom’s State of the State Address

For immediate release:


SACRAMENTO - Assemblymember Marc Berman (D-Menlo Park) issued the following statement in response to Governor Gavin Newsom’s State of the State address:

“I applaud Governor Newsom’s bold commitment to creating solutions to California's greatest challenges. As California recovers from the pandemic, we must prioritize an equitable recovery for all. I look forward to continuing to work with Governor Newsom and my colleagues in the Legislature to address the homelessness crisis, pass critically important housing affordability policies, expand access to early learning, bolster mental health services, and urgently address the present and future impacts of climate change. As democracy is under attack, both across the world and here in America, California must continue to show that we can expand access to a safe and secure ballot. We have a lot of work to do as we grapple with the continuing effects of the pandemic, but I know we will make progress this year on California’s biggest challenges, statewide and in the 24th Assembly District.”
